Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

The Mc Glinchey’s approached me about recreating the famous  scene from the 1969 American Western film Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid in which Paul Newman as Butch Cassidy and Robert Redford as the Sundance Kid make a leap of faith.

The film  directed by George Roy Hill and written by William Goldman is based loosely on fact, the film tells the story of Wild West outlaws Robert LeRoy Parker, known as Butch Cassidy (Paul Newman), and his partner Harry Longabaugh, the “Sundance Kid” (Robert Redford), who are on the run from a crack US posse after a string of train robberies. The pair and Sundance’s lover, Etta Place (Katharine Ross), flee to Bolivia in search of a more successful criminal career, where they meet their end.
