Did he ever make a bad movie? I can't think of one. A great actor and a gentleman.

Thanks for putting this up.

I read in the paper today that he loved to ride an "old fashion bicycle" around his Hole in the Wall Gang Camp he founded for sick children (It would surprise me if it was exactly this one). Anyway he sold it in a charity auction but missed it so much that he ended up buying it back for $10,000!!!

Also I like how he said "Meet the future," in the beginning of the the scene. Truer words are rarely ever spoken.

I was sad this morning when I heard the news. Well, his super-delicious goods (and great cause) will always live in my kitchen with Newman's Own

my favorite movie of course is Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid! Thanks for doing this post, those scenes are the best /xo

When I was 17 This movie was new and sold out everywhere. You had to wait in line for hours to get in as it was just in a few theaters. I went to see it with an older woman (she was 22!) I was a shy boy and during this scene she put her arm in mine and it started a wonderful love affair. The song always takes me back instantly! Thank you for putting it up.
