Storyline

Ready to quit their life of crime, the three "most-wanted" outlaws in the West---Butch Cassidy, Sundance Kid and Bill Carver ---perform their final job by robbing and stealing a train and fleeing across the border.

Butch Cassidy: No, I'm blamin' my old man.
Sundance Kid: What are you talkin' about?
Butch Cassidy: Well, when I was ten, if he'd hired an honest foreman instead of a rustler, I'da probably grown up respectable.

A very unknown but likable little western....with a good song
20 November 2005 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

There are no credits given for the song or the singer for the ballad with which this movie begins, either at the beginning or end of the film itself or here at IMDb. I assume Paul Dunlop at least wrote it since he is credited with songs for other western films.

If anyone finds out the name of the singer, please post it. He's not bad.

I'm amazed anyone else saw this. I caught it by accident on the Western Channel (Starz) and surprised that a film boasting Neville Brand, plus other famous character actors like Alan Hale, Jr. and Bruce Bennett would be so unknown.
