Oscar Context:

In 1969, “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” competed for the Best Picture with historical epic “Anne of the Thousand Days,” the musical
“Hello, Dolly!” “Midnight Cowboy,” which won, and the political thriller “Z.”

The Best Director was John Schlesinger for “Midnight Cowboy,” and the Sound Oscar inexplicably went to “Hello, Dolly!”
