Some filmmakers just can’t make their minds up. For whatever reason, they film a number of alternate endings until they settle on one they like best, then just casually pretend like it was that one all along. But in an age of DVD extras and Youtube, no secret can stay secret forever-so we’ve put together a list of movies that might well have ended differently, for better or for worse. You’ll be glad number five stuck with the one they did…

1. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

In this classic western, Robert Redford and Paul Newman star as a couple of outlaws with hearts of gold. The actual film ends with them running out into a shootout, freezeframing as they draw their pistols and before they’re mown down in an inevitable hail of bullets. The alternate ending actually shows us their gruesome deaths and their bodies being dragged away-which somewhat undercuts the brilliant blaze-of-glory ending. Less is so much more.
