Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head. The song won an Oscar for Burt Bacharach and Hal David, who wrote the lyrics. Bacharach also won for Original Score.

Union Pacific. Butch preferred to rob banks rather than trains, because -- 'Banks don't move.'
Hole-in-the-Wall. The real life gang was named 'The Wild Bunch'. A movie by that name was made starring William Holden and Ernest Borgnine.
Butch Cassidy. For me the movie was filled with memorable dialogue.
'I can't swim.'. I enjoyed the subtle humor or comedy throughout the film.
'The Sting'. Personally, for me, 'The Sting' never captured the same on-screen chemistry as B and S did. The writing and the dialogue was not equal.

What was Butch's great idea of where they should go next?||Butch and Sundance's Excellent Adventure
Australia. Butch told Sundance the banks, and the women, were easy in Australia. And they spoke English, too. They emerged shooting, to be met by a hail of gunfire from the soldiers.
They were recognized by the brand on a mule they had stolen.. A young boy saw the brand on a mule Butch and Sundance took when they robbed a payroll mule train and told the Captain of the local police.
|After thinking he saw Joe Lefors in a Bolivian town, Butch decided again that they should go straight. They applied for jobs at a mine, owned by Percy Garris, an inveterate tobacco chewer. When Garris spit tobacco and it landed where he wanted, what did he say?||Butch and Sundance's Excellent Adventure
"Bingo!". Garris called himself "colorful", saying after you lived alone in Bolivia for ten years you got colorful. Bolivian bandits shot him a second later.

Atlantic City, New Jersey. Sundance thought the desolate little village might be the garden spot of Bolivia, the Atlantic City of the country.

|The posse sent by the Union Pacific Railroad to kill Butch and Sundance included Joe Lefors, a lawman from Wyoming, and an Indian tracker who said he could track anyone over any terrain. What name did the Indian give himself?||Butch and Sundance's Excellent Adventure
Lord Baltimore. Lord Baltimore was a real scout and tracker for the U.S. Army, but there is no evidence that he ever tracked Butch and Sundance. In the film, he was said to usually stay in Oklahoma, the implication being that the Union Pacific owner wanted these outlaws so badly that money was no object in obtaining the people to find and kill them.
|The Hole in the Wall Gang, led by Butch Cassidy (Paul Newman), had robbed Union Pacific Railroad trains several times. While they were robbing the "Flyer" one more time, a second train approached and a mounted posse leapt from a box car and started chasing the gang. After being followed all day, Butch and Sundance hid in a brothel in a town they knew. They sent an old man out to misdirect the posse if they came through. What was the old man's name?||Butch and Sundance's Excellent Adventure
Sweet Face. Butch told Sweet Face, "You do this right and I'll get you an old dog to kick." Sweet Face sat on a bench across the street until the posse came through, then directed them out of town.
