The Bit Players buddy up for a bank-robbing adventure through Bolivia with this week's podcast on Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. The guys talk about the brilliance of William Goldman's screenplay and how the constant levity and interplay of the film's two leads, Robert Redford and Paul Newman, keeps things fun throughout its duration. They discuss whether a film of such lighthearted tone could be considered a "classic" Western, and whether that's even what Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid strikes to be, modern-day comparisons of star power, and what the town folk must have been thinking about getting robbed blind by the hottest dudes in Bolivia.
