Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Saddle up and ride with charming mastermind Butch Cassidy (Tom Berenger, Platoon) and his crack shot cohort The Sundance Kid (William Katt, The Greatest American Hero) in the days before fame, when fun was the name of the game!
This is the prequel of how they met: their first clumsy robberies, the showdowns and shootouts that bound them together, the secret that nearly tore them apart and the impossible train heist that made them notorious. Brian Dennehy, Jill Eikenberry, Peter Weller and Christopher Lloyd costar in this hit action-comedy directed by Richard Lester (A Hard Days Night, Superman II) that received an Academy Award for Best Costume Design.
Fifteen years after starring together in The Dirty Dozen, Charles Bronson and Lee Marvin team up again in Death Hunt for an exciting action film that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Lone trapper Albert Johnson (Bronson) shoots and kills a man in self-defense at his remote Yukon cabin. A few days later, lawman Sgt. Edgar Millen reluctantly puts together a posse of heavily armed men to arrest Johnson for the murder: but bringing Albert Johnson in ends up being more than anyone bargained for.

Bronson is pursued by Lee Marvin-a RMP in snowy northern Canada for a crime
he did not commit. It is a tale of survival against long odds. Better than
his Death Wish series (except maybe #1). Plenty of action/violence. I haven't
watched the 2nd feature yet;if it's good,my overall rating would move to 5 stars.
An additional bonus is Butch and Sundance with great actor Tom Berringer. Buy this combo!
Having made his elegiac and wistful look at the dying days of one legendary outlaw a few years earlier with Robin and Marion, Richard Lester ended the seventies with an amiable look at the beginning of another pair of outlaws' career in the engaging and surprisingly entertaining Butch and Sundance: The Early Days. Lester may have regarded the film as a `Victorian adventure' rather than a Western, but don't let that fool you: it's an entertaining though highly episodic oater that celebrates the outlaw of movie folklore with its tongue not too far in its cheek rather than grimly deconstructing the myth as was the fashion in the late 70s. It only offers a few hints that time already is running out in the form of Joe Lefors' lawman, introduced with a shot of his iconic straw hat but here just another sheriff leading an easily discouraged posse rather than the relentless nemesis of the George Roy Hill film, and our two heroes are in their prime rather than living on borrowed time. Here one of the biggest problems they face is coming up with a suitable outlaw name for Henry Longabough and creating the right kind of legend to ensure their popularity.
Tom Berenger and William Katt may not be another Paul Newman and Robert Redford but they do a fair approximation of what their Butch and Sundance could have been like when they first teamed up.Read more ›
The second film is a possible prequel to Butch and Sundance: The Early Days classic movie. It stars William Katt and Tom Berenger and is a good western chronicle of the two bandits early years. The supporting class includes veteran actors like Jeff Corey, John Shuck, Peter Weller, Brian Dennehy, Christopher Lloyd, Jill Eikenberry, Noble Willingham and patrick Stewart.
