Perfect Telluride Film Fest Moment


Riding my pink townie down Colorado Ave at ten at night. I hear Spanish, I see the glint of celluloid, and right then catch the tail end of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid playing outdoors at the Abel Gance in Elks Park. Paul Newman and Robert Redford pinned down in a Bolivian plaza, they stand and bolt out, frozen in time, guns blazing.

I cruise down the darkened street and roll right past the former of site of the San Miguel Bank. On June 24, 1889, a young Butch Cassidy walked into the building with his two partners in crime. That morning he robbed his very first bank.

A fine place to honor this years honoree.
