Overview

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is given a fine treatment on DVD. The cinematography, which won Conrad Hall his first Oscar, was sorely mistreated by years in pan-and-scan video prints. The 2.35:1 anamorphic transfer thankfully restores Hall's stunning photography to its original theatrical release quality. The commentary track features director George Roy Hill, lyricist Hal David, associate producer Robert Crawford, and Conrad Hall. While scene-specific, the style of the comments suggest that the participants were recorded separately. The 45-minute documentary included was made at the time of the filming. Though 30 years old, it is extensive and details every aspect of the production from the movie's start to its climax, including historical information about the characters. Finally, to compensate for the lack of a current documentary, 1994 interviews with Paul Newman, Robert Redford, Katharine Ross, writer William Goldman, and composer Burt Bacharach are included from a separate menu. Trailers and an alternate end-credit roll are also included. Between the commentary, the 1969 featurette, and the retrospective interviews, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is an exhaustive historical document of a classic film, augmented by the terrific digital transfer.
