taught him the line,

and then he went a little

quicker and quicker and quicker.

And he learned real well.

He listened really well.

He stayed out particularly late.

He kept going.

You know, I'd get out of the car

and be happy to get

out of the car,

but Paul, he really loved it.

Got the look

of eagles in his eyes.

I could see it.

I could see him starting.

And when he came

out of that picture,

that was a permanent lifetime

passion of his,

and it never diminished.

"Winning" was just completed

when we did "Butch Cassidy."

Listen, I don't mean

to be a sore loser, but,

When it's done,

if I'm dead, kill him.

Love to.

I first met him in a way

that probably made

indelible our friendship,

or at least my devotion to him,

because they were

casting the film,

"Butch Cassidy

and the Sundance Kid."

He was already cast.

He was a well-known name.

I was being approached

to play Butch Cassidy.

The original title of the film was

"the Sundance Kid

and Butch Cassidy"

'cause Paul was gonna play


The studio said no,

I wasn't enough of a name.

It seemed to center on the fact

of Paul's approval.

I had never met him,

so we went to meet him.

And after that meeting, Paul

just said, "I'll go with it.

I'll go with Redford."

Well, that ought to do it.

In the course of making the film,

we discovered that we had a lot

in common,

and we developed a friendship

that was

not unlike the two characters

in the film.

I'll jump first.


- Then you jump first.

- No, I said.

What's the matter with you?!

I can't swim!

Why, you crazy, the fall

will probably kill ya.


Oh, shi-I-I-I-I-I-I-t!

He would drive souped-up cars...

Volkswagen all jacked up...

But there were no

racing cars involved.

I had racing cars because

I'd been a lover of racing
