Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969)



Pax's last few picks have been building to this and we're finally here. He introduces Michael to the George Roy Hill classic, written by the legendary William Goldman (Rest in Peace) and starring the best-looking, most charming men of '70s cinema. Pax also looks at the related Mrs. Sundance, Wanted: The Sundance Woman, and Butch and Sundance: The Early Days. And Michael talks about watching a listener-recommended show, the short-lived Peacemakers starring Tom Berenger. All this and some Pony Express.
