    About the Film

    Paul Newman and Robert Redford are at their charismatic best as the legendary and lovable bank-robbers who manage to stay ahead of the law by avoiding confrontation and running away whenever trouble finds them.  Joining their ride is Katherine Ross (The Graduate) who loves them both equally.

    Funny, action-packed, moving and romantic, the film also features the classic Oscar winning song "Raindrops Keep Falling On my Head" photographed against the backdrop of one of cinema's most memorable bike rides. Conrad Hall's brilliant cinematography and William Goldman's script also took home Oscars.

    Trivia: The dynamic between the talkative Butch and the stoic Sundance was used as the model for Amitabh and Dharmendra's dynamic in the Indian film "Sholay".
