The boys from the Nighthawks diner take a special look at George Roy Hill’s classic 1969 film Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid, starring Robert Redford and Paul Newman.
This episode was originally conceived of as a pilot episode for another podcast. Unfortunately the plans for production never came to fruition, but that pilot episode is now available to our Nighthawks Podcast listeners.
The Jackalope Drive-In Podcast was intended to be a region specific travel podcast that examined films relating to Wyoming through the lens of tourist destinations and attractions. In the pilot we discuss the historicity of George Roy Hill’s film with the real life Butch and Sundance. Helping Matt and Trevor to parse fact from fiction is Debra Cease, Site Superintendent for the Wyoming Territorial Prison State Historic Site in Laramie, Wyoming- the only prison in history to have held Butch Cassidy.
