Butch and Sundance score 4.1 out of 5

Our last showing was of the classic 60’s Western “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid”, and was thoroughly enjoyed by the audience, who collectively gave it an average rating of 4.1 out of 5. Perhaps the only real criticism was that the night scenes were so dark as to be almost unseeable – perhaps the fault of the equiupment or the DVD copy. However, the film was a reminder of just how charismatic the leads, Robert Redford and Paul Newman, were, and just how good they were at comedy. Every Western cliche was milked for all it was worth, with a funny, exciting , memorable screen experience the result. It is hard to realise that it was made over 40 years ago!
