One comment on “An Interview with Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

  1. An interesting article/interview….good of you to share this project. I teach a college-level course on Westerns and also write about them at – you/others may be interested in another approach to the Butch Cassidy story that came out in 2011. It was the film, Blackthorn (2011), which starred Sam Shepard as a Cassidy that lived to much later in life in South America. I agree with the comments by the above actors about the shadow that Newman and Redford have cast….but it is not impossible to take another approach to the story of Cassidy and Sundance. Their artistic bravery in doing such is commendable and important – we can’t believe that a story can only be told one way! 🙂

    Here is a link to a post I did about Blackthorn:
