Paul Newman and Robert Redford paved new trails in the buddy picture with this wistful Western penned by celebrated novelist William Goldman. Near the end of the 19th century, Butch leads the notorious Hole-in-the-Wall Gang in a series of robberies. After a botched train robbery, Butch and his loyal cohort the Sundance Kid find themselves pursued by a ruthless posse. With Sundance’s girlfriend in tow, the bandits head to South America for amnesty and riches.
Ryan Conroy from the Historical Society of the Phoenixville Area will introduce the film and talk about the Sundance Kid’s connection to Mont Clare.
