“The stu­dio wanted Steve McQueen [or] Mar­lon Brando,” Robert says of his role in 1969’s Butch Cas­sidy and the Sun­dance Kid. But Paul fought for Robert.

Robert re­turned the fa­vor af­ter his star­dom eclipsed Paul’s; he sac­ri­ficed so Paul could co-star in 1973’s The Sting.

The duo en­joyed an easy rap­port off cam­era, as seen in this pic with one of Paul’s daugh­ters dur­ing a break from film­ing Butch Cas­sidy in Mexico in 1968.
