Clip Description
After a botched train robbery, Butch Cassidy (Paul Newman) and the Sundance Kid (Redford) are forced to go on the run, but they are doggedly pursued by a posse they can't seem to shake. Faced with fighting their way out of a rough spot or jumping over a cliff into a river.
Movie Description
In late 1890s Wyoming, Butch Cassidy is the affable, clever, talkative leader of the outlaw Hole in the Wall Gang. His closest companion is the laconic dead-shot "Sundance Kid". As the west rapidly becomes civilized, the law finally catches up to Butch, Sundance and their gang. Chased doggedly by a special posse, the two decide to make their way to South America in hopes of evading their pursuers once and for all.
