makes you laugh out loud

It's been too many days without a Redford movie, so here's a Redford/Newman classic. The screenwriter of this movie, William Goldman, also penned The Princess Bride. In the introduction to that book (which is wonderful, by the way), he states that when he wrote the scene in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid where they jump off the cliff, he was picturing the Cliffs of Insanity from The Princess Bride. I'm not sure if I'm remembering the order of that right, but I know I read that the two were connected in his mind.

The picture today is inspired by the scenes in the movie where Butch and Sundance rob the loyal bank employee Woodcock on the Union Pacific train car more than once.
