    RIP

    Had watched his All the President’s Men long time back and need to watch it again.

    Liked his Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. My comment on the movie.

    “Also watched Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, a 1969 Western based on the true story of these real life bandits. The movie was entertaining and the chemistry between Paul Newman and Robert Redford was excellent. Jai and Veeru characters and the chemistry between them seem inspired from them – Jai modeled on Robert Redford (left handed sharp shooter) and Veeru modeled on Paul Newman(cycle tricks). Robbing the bank in Bolivia scene was very funny. The Holi fight scene of Sholay also seemed inspired from one scene – not copied though. Katharine Ross of The Graduate fame looked very pretty and was good too. Incidentally I saw the movie on her birthday Jan 29th 😀 The movie was nominated for 7 Oscars and won 4 Oscars for Best original screenplay, Best Cinematography; Best Original Score and Best Song for “Raindrops keep fallin on my head”.
