6. Lemmon and Brando as Butch and Sundance ??
:o

don't get me wrong, I love Lemmon and Brando can not be denied but, really, so glad that it ended up being Paul and Bob

and for that matter I can not imagine anyone but Garner being Murphy.

my brain can only bend so much, ya know pardner ;)

7. I agree. Others that were considered for Sundance included Warren Beaty and Steve McQueen.
Makes one wonder, what if?

9. BC & SK is a western comedy.
