Storyline

Midwest preacher's son 'Butch' Parker gets a pardon after a well-deserved year in jail on promise never again to commit crimes in Wyoming. He befriends naive ranch hand Harry, would be-crime king the Sundance Kid. In relative Mike Cassidy's gang, they rob targets defended by the ruthless Pinkerton Agency men. The gang becomes the Wild Bunch after Mike is killed and Butch takes his place, by now reputed Robin Hoods as the railroad is so unpopular. Having faked their death, they retire to a pueblo in Mexico with shared girl-friend, photographer Etta Place. Sergeant Sanchez wants the bounty on their heads, or a larger share of their loot.

Goofs

Before a shootout, Butch reminds Sundance that their Colt revolvers are each loaded with six rounds. Although such pistols could indeed hold six cartridges, common practice at the time was to load only five, thereby keeping the hammer down on an empty chamber. This was a safety measure intended to prevent the gun from firing if it was dropped on the the hammer with six rounds loaded. See more »

Television new version about the known bandits with a youthful casting
26 December 2007 | by See all my reviews

This TV movie is based on real events about But Cassidy and Sundance Kid and previously adapted to cinema by George Roy Hill with Robert Redford and Paul Newman. This film is well played by a juvenile cast, such as, David Clayton Rogers, Ryan Browning and a gorgeous Rachelle Lefevre, playing to Etta Place. They are continuously pursued by Pinkerton agent, played Blake Gibbons as Durango. Besides appear veterans actors as Susan Ruttan as Etta's mummy and Michael Biehn as Mike Cassidy, the Butch's mentor. The film displays a nice score by Basil Poledouris, at his last film. He was an excellent composer and author of masterpieces, he composed : Robocop, Conan the Barbarian, and the destroyer, Hunt for Red October, Flesh and Blood, Free Willy, Starship troopers, among others. The motion picture is rightly directed by Sergio Mimica, an usual director of television episodes such as, Invasion,Prison break and Battlestar Galactica.

Adding more details about the Butch Cassidy, Sundance Kid and Etta Place life, their true deeds were the following : they were celebrated leaders of the Wild Bunch gang of train robbers, and the last old-style bandits of the West. Cassidy, born in Utah, grandson of a Mormon bishop, his real name was Robert Parker. He adopted the name Cassidy in admiration of Mike Cassidy, a rustler who taught him to shoot and steal livestock , he was dubbed Butch from his short time working in a butcher's shop. He was convicted of stealing horses .By all accounts Butch was a likable fellow, described in a Pinkerton wanted poster as a having a cheerful and affable manner.It is said that, although a crack shot, he never killed anybody, and disliked gratuitous violence. Still determined on a life of crime he formed a gang, known as the Wild Bunch and robbed banks and trains. One of the gang was Harry Longbaugh, known as the Sundance Kid. This notorious pair became rustlers in the mid-90s, and they moved into train robberies, later, gaining fame and fortune but with the Pinkerton and railroad agents hot on their trail. Plus, Etta Place, fabled as the lover of Sundance Kid, it is very likely that Etta did take part in robberies, notably the hold up of Up Train in August 1900, dressed as a man. She did not, however died in Bolivia ambush that killed Butch and Sundance, since she was undergoing surgery on her appendix at the time. The Wild Bunch broke up and Cassidy and Longsbaugh sailed to South America in 1901 and continued their banditry there. It is believed they died in a gunfight with troops in Bolivia, near La Paz or Uruguay.
