Butch And Sundance (42:51)
Funny westerns are not common and our 78th ‘cast features a big debate about whether or not that shift in tone works. Newman & Redford do have unmatched chemistry in this smash hit. This is our final 1960s film, but the movies are just going to get better in the ‘70s! Meanwhile, ask yourself “who are those guys” and hear us break it all down. And, Canadians, order yourself some Sparkplug Coffee!

Are you sure about the no swearing in this one? I seem to recall Newman dropping a muffled-but-audible F-bomb when they’re getting shot at towards the end.
Also, while I did enjoy this Newman-Redford joint, I’ve always found ‘The Sting’ a lot more memorable.
If he swore, I didn’t catch it. And I’m pretty sure they didn’t want a worse rating BECAUSE of it, so it would definitely have been muffled at best.
