A "Butch Cassidy" retraction

Kai Ryssdal Feb 8, 2011

This final note today. A shout out to the cinephiles who clearly know their “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” better than I do. That scene I mentioned yesterday in our interview about the Huffington Post-AOL deal — the bit where Butch and Sundance go jumping off the cliff — that was the middle of the movie, not the end. No Bolivian army at that point, either.

So consider this a correction for the record. Still a pretty good movie though.
