Description by OLDIES.com:

Experience this Academy Award-winning masterpiece as never before! Featuring never-before-seen footage, this two-disc collector's set is the definitive edition of one of the most legendary and iconic films of all time!

Notorious outlaws Butch Cassidy (Newman) and the Sundance Kid (Redford) once ruled the dusty towns and breathtaking vistas of the Old West. But when a relentless "superposse" picks up their trail, they realize their days are numbered. With Sundance's girlfriend, Etta (Katharine Ross), they flee to Bolivia. But old habits die hard, and when their thieving ways continue, Butch and Sundance find themselves outgunned, outnumbered and in for the fight of their lives.

Product Description:

This 1969 Western encapsulates the genre, with dramatic chase scenes on horseback through breathtaking landscapes, daring robberies of banks and trains, true comradery between cowboys who would risk their lives for one another, and copious amounts of renegade charm. Butch Cassidy (Paul Newman) is the smart, savvy leader of The Hole in the Wall Gang, and his sidekick the Sundance Kid (Robert Redford) ranks among the best shooters the West has known. This combination of brains and menace allows the duo to roam unchallenged, staging petty robberies when needed and otherwise kicking back at the local brothel. But when a six-pack of the best cowboys in nearby states gather to bring down the rebels, using a Native American tracker to follow them across rivers, over mountains, and through deserts; Butch and Sundance decide to flee. Gathering Sundance's girlfriend (Katherine Ross), they make their way to Bolivia via New York City. Unfortunately, old habits die hard, and before they know it, the charismatic criminals find themselves in an all-too-familiar situation, this time facing South American enemies.

Directed by George Roy Hill, BUTCH CASSIDY's balance of drama, action, and humor is a winning combination on its own. But this excellent tale of friendship and adventure is most successful for its talented leads, who fill every scene with wit, skill, and machismo. A broad color palette showcases glorious sunsets and peaceful rivers running through the craggy Rocky Mountains, while brief interludes of black and white still shots inject artistic flair. In every sense a classic, BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID is simply timeless.
