Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

 (1969)

The Sundance Kid is the frontier's fastest gun. His sidekick, Butch Cassidy, is always dreaming up new ways to get rich fast. If only they could blow open a baggage car without also blowing up the money-filled safe inside...Or remember that Sundance can't swim before they escape a posse by leaping off a cliff into rushing rapids. So Butch and Sundance pack their guns, don new duds, and, with Sundance's girlfriend, head down to Bolivia.

For more about Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and the Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid Blu-ray release, see Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: Paul Newman, Robert Redford, Katharine Ross, Strother Martin, Henry Jones, Jeff Corey (I)

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

The video quality has not aged well either. It lacks good resolution and definition, which is a shame as cinematographer Conrad L. Hall received an Oscar for best cinematography. The landscapes and countryside depicted in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid are beautiful, but almost every video parameter is subpar, including detail and contrast, which appears to be artificially pumped up. As a result, depth suffers. But the problems also include instances of noise, flickering/strobing and atrocious blacks. To be fair, the picture would never be a videophile's dream because Hall shot much of the footage very soft for a more romantic look. But even factoring in that caveat, it's difficult to say anything good about the picture. I would like to say it feels like watching an old film projector, but it isn't quite as organic because the digitized transfer has obviously been processed to death.

Watch the scene where the six lawmen pursue Butch and Sundance at night. On the DVD, this pursuit occurs in near-darkness, with mainly the torches of the pursuers visible. But the Blu-ray picture is brightened considerably, and what previously looked like night now looks like early twilight or dusk. It's an odd choice to add so much brightness and contrast and I think I know why Fox did it. With the soft shots delivered by Hall, pumping up the brightness and contrast were probably the only ways to clearly distinguish the Blu-ray from the previous DVD edition. Well, the BD distinguishes itself, alright, but not for the best. The BD appears slightly richer, but it is up for personal preference as to which version is superior. Those of you familiar with the film know it starts out in a sepia treatment. Frankly, the introductory sepia sequence and a similar, still-image treatment during the musical interlude when Butch and Sundance flee America are the most interesting imagery in the film. That's a shame because the landscape shots really are gorgeous. They simply are not done justice on the BD. Despite the color vibrancy or maybe because of it, the picture has a processed feel. It's not horrible, but some life has been sucked out.



Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The audio is not well defined either. Like the picture, the sound is processed heavily--mostly to create the 5.1 mix from the original mono. Needless to say, 99% of the content remains in mono (center channel). The sound of voices is good. Dialog is clear and easy to follow. Explosions are even more dynamic. But the music is where it all falls apart, and since extended scenes involve music scores, this is a big problem.

Listen to the piano accompaniment in "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head". It sounds like it was a plastic keyboard in a bathroom recorded through a 20-ft hose. The dynamics are totally squashed and lifeless. The vocals fare a bit better, but it's nothing to get excited about. To be fair, the problem is ultimately the source material. The expression "polishing a turd" applies. No matter what Fox does to clean it up or process it, the recording was not done properly in the first place and no amount of digital processing or noise reduction will help. The best approach may have been to give us an honest transfer as close as possible to the source material: mono audio and video that wasn't excessively processed. But that would not have met with a warm reception, either, because most Blu-rays have spoiled viewers and audiophiles alike with stunning resolution.
