>Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
When Robert Redford and Paul Newman leapt off that cliff in the climactic scene of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, they leapt straight into movie mythology. The exploits of two 19th-century bank robbers who find it increasingly difficult to stay ahead of the law, the film reinvented the Western even as it mourned its passing. The film resonated with audiences, who made it the biggest grossing film of the year, success that boosted the careers of both its principals.

Yojimbo
In one of his best-known roles, Toshiro Mifune plays a boisterous, bullying, amoral ronin who calls himself simply Sanjuro. When Sanjuro wanders into a town terrorized by an ongoing war between two factions, he decides to make a fistful of ryo—and have a little fun—by cleaning up the place. Yojimbo was inspired by the American Western and combines its best elements—a remarkable authenticity, finely drawn characters, brilliant comedy, superb editing, and exquisite widescreen cinematography.
