George Roy Hill

Butch Cassidy ad The Sundance Kid – great Bill Goldman script (he had a run of good screenplays in the 70’s) and a great film. Watch for the cameo by Lurch from The Addams Family (the 60’s version).
The Sting – See Quint get taken to the cleaners by Fast Eddie and Sundance. This is almost an old fashioned studio movie. Feels very backlot to me sometimes.
Slap Shot – funny, vulgar hockey movie, written by a chick. Who knew hockey could be entertaining? For you super geeks, you’ll notice Sheriff Truman from Twin Peaks as one of the main characters.
