Released in 1969, Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid is a classic Western of that dreamy late 60s/early 70s era. It’s gorgeous, with imagery that sticks with you. Who can shake Katharine Ross as Etta Place, the quiet slow-burning schoolteacher with a rebel bone who trades her prim puffed sleeves for britches and a black hat? Or the swaggery and vaguely metro bravado of the two pretty cowboys at the center of the story, played by Paul Newman and Robert Redford -- actors who defined masculinity for a generation? Damn it's stylish.
