Two infamous outlaws, chased by the law, embark on a thrilling journey to escape their past and create a new future.
Watch the original version of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
The sun was setting over the plains of Wyoming, painting the sky in shades of gold and pink. It was a beautiful sight, but Butch Cassidy and the members of his gang had no time to enjoy it. They had just robbed a train and were making a hasty getaway, with the law hot on their heels.
Butch Cassidy was the leader of the Hole in the Wall Gang, and the most wanted outlaw in Wyoming. He was a charming and likable man, with a quick wit and a love for adventure. His closest companion was the Sundance Kid, a laconic but deadly accurate shooter who rarely spoke but had a fierce loyalty to Butch.
As they rode their horses through the rugged terrain, Butch turned to Sundance. “This is getting to be too much, Sundance,” he said. “I don’t know how much longer we can keep this up.”
Sundance nodded in agreement. He knew that the law was catching up to them, and they couldn’t keep on robbing banks and trains forever. But he also knew that Butch wasn’t ready to give up just yet.
“We’ll find a way out of this,” Butch said, determination in his voice. “We always do.”
And with that, they spurred their horses forward, ready to face whatever came their way. Little did they know that their next adventure would take them all the way to South America, and that they would become legends in the process.
Chapter 1: The Hole in the Wall Gang
Butch Cassidy sat in the dimly lit saloon, nursing a drink and trying to forget about his troubles. He had just lost a big poker game, and his funds were running low. As he sat there, he noticed a group of rough-looking men at the bar, whispering to each other.
Curiosity getting the better of him, Butch approached them. “What’s going on, boys?” he asked, trying to sound friendly.
The men gave him a once-over, sizing him up. “We’re part of the Hole in the Wall Gang,” one of them said. “You ever heard of us?”
Butch nodded. He had heard of them, of course. They were a notorious group of outlaws who robbed banks and trains all across Wyoming. But he had never met any of them before.
“I’m Butch Cassidy,” he said, extending his hand. “Pleased to make your acquaintance.”
The men eyed him warily for a moment, but then one of them grinned and shook his hand. “Name’s Kid Curry,” he said. “Welcome to the gang, Butch.”
And just like that, Butch Cassidy became a member of the Hole in the Wall Gang. It was a rough and tumble group, with no rules except those made by Butch himself. They robbed trains and banks with ease, always staying one step ahead of the law.
Butch was a natural leader, with a quick wit and a fierce determination. He was also a loyal friend, and he and Sundance Kid quickly became inseparable. Sundance was a man of few words, but his shooting skills were unmatched. He could take down a man from a hundred yards away without breaking a sweat.
Together, Butch and Sundance led the gang through some of the most daring and successful robberies in Wyoming history. They became legends in their own time, feared by the rich and powerful and loved by the common folk.
But as the west began to settle and become more civilized, the law finally caught up to them. The Pinkerton Detective Agency put a bounty on their heads, and they were forced to flee for their lives. It was then that they hatched a plan to escape to South America, where they hoped to live out the rest of their days as free men. But little did they know that their journey would be filled with danger, excitement, and unexpected twists and turns.
Chapter 2: The Special Posse
As the law closes in on Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid, the two outlaws must rely on their charm and cunning to stay ahead of the special posse led by lawman Joe Lefors. Butch knows that they need to outsmart their pursuers and come up with a plan to escape to South America.
The posse is relentless, following them every step of the way. Butch and Sundance narrowly escape capture several times, but they know that it’s only a matter of time before the law catches up with them. Sundance becomes increasingly quiet, and Butch knows that he’s worried.
One day, while the posse is hot on their trail, Butch comes up with an idea. He tells Sundance that they need to split up and meet back up in a few days. Sundance is skeptical, but Butch insists that it’s the best way to throw the posse off their trail.
Sundance reluctantly agrees, and they part ways. Butch is confident that he can handle himself and outsmart the posse. He heads for a nearby town to lay low and make plans.
In the town, Butch meets a woman named Mary. She’s a stunning young woman with long, dark hair and sparkling brown eyes. Butch is immediately drawn to her, and they strike up a conversation. Mary is intrigued by Butch’s charm and wit, and they hit it off.
Butch spends the next few days in town, getting to know Mary and planning his next move. He’s careful to stay under the radar, but he can’t resist the allure of Mary’s company. They go on long walks together and spend their evenings talking and laughing.
Meanwhile, Sundance is on his own, trying to stay one step ahead of the posse. He’s a skilled sharpshooter, and he uses his abilities to avoid capture. He’s also worried about Butch and wonders if he’s okay.
After a few days, Butch decides that it’s time to meet back up with Sundance. He says goodbye to Mary and heads out of town. As he rides his horse through the countryside, he can’t shake the feeling that he’s being watched.
Suddenly, he hears a gunshot. He ducks down and hides behind a tree, pulling out his revolver. He doesn’t see anyone, but he knows that he needs to be careful. He creeps forward, keeping his eyes peeled for any sign of danger.
As he approaches a rocky outcropping, he sees a figure in the distance. It’s Sundance. Butch is relieved to see his friend, and he runs towards him.
“Sundance, are you okay?” he asks.
“Yeah, I’m fine,” Sundance replies, looking relieved to see Butch. “I was worried about you.”
“I’m okay,” Butch says, grinning. “Let’s get out of here before the posse catches up with us.”
They ride off into the distance, feeling relieved to be together again. But they know that the posse is still hot on their trail, and they need to come up with a plan to escape to South America before it’s too late.
Chapter 3: Escape to South America
Butch, Sundance, and Etta Place knew they had to leave Wyoming and head for South America. The special posse led by lawman Joe Lefors was too close for comfort, and the trio knew that their only chance of survival was to leave the country altogether.
As they sat in a small cabin in the mountains, they discussed their plans. Butch was his usual self, exuberant and full of ideas. Sundance was more reserved, but his eyes sparkled with excitement at the thought of a new adventure. Etta, the only woman among them, was calm and collected, but her heart was pounding in her chest.
“So, what’s the plan, Butch?” Sundance asked.
“We need to get out of here, that’s for sure,” Butch said. “We can’t just take any old boat to South America, though. We need something that won’t attract too much attention.”
“That’s easier said than done,” Etta pointed out. “The Pinkertons are everywhere, and they’re watching every port.”
“But we have to try,” Butch said. “We can’t just sit here and wait for them to find us.”
They spent the next few days scouting out the area, looking for a way to get to the coast undetected. They knew that they couldn’t risk taking a train or a stagecoach, as the law would be looking for them. They had to find a more creative solution.
Finally, Sundance had an idea. “I know a guy who runs a horse ranch near here,” he said. “He might be able to help us.”
They rode to the ranch, where they were greeted by a man named Eduardo. Eduardo was a rugged, weather-beaten man with a thick accent and a friendly smile. He listened to their story and nodded thoughtfully.
“I can help you,” he said. “I have a boat that I use for fishing. It’s small, but it’s fast. We can get you to the coast without anyone noticing.”
Butch and Sundance exchanged a glance. It was a risky plan, but it might just work.
“What about the others?” Etta asked. “The rest of our gang? What will happen to them?”
Butch shook his head. “We can’t worry about them right now,” he said. “We have to focus on getting out of here alive. The others will have to fend for themselves.”
They agreed to meet Eduardo at the boat the next day. As they rode back to the cabin, they knew that they were taking a huge risk. But there was no other choice.
The next day, they met Eduardo at the edge of a lake. He had the boat ready and waiting. It was a small, battered fishing boat, but it looked seaworthy.
They climbed aboard, and Eduardo started the motor. The boat hummed into life, and they headed out across the lake. They could see the mountains behind them, covered in snow.
As they headed south, they encountered choppy waters and fierce winds. The boat was tossed around like a toy, and Etta clung to Sundance for support. Butch, meanwhile, laughed and whooped, exhilarated by the rough ride.
They made their way down the coast, avoiding the larger towns and cities. They relied on Eduardo’s knowledge of the area to keep them hidden from the law.
It was a dangerous journey, and they knew that they could be caught at any moment. Butch and Sundance kept their pistols close at hand, ready to defend themselves if necessary.
Finally, after several days of travel, they arrived at a small port. Eduardo pulled the boat close to the shore, and they jumped out onto the sand.
“We made it,” Butch said, grinning ear to ear.
“Thanks to Eduardo,” Sundance said, shaking the man’s hand.
Eduardo smiled. “Be careful,” he said. “The law is always watching.”
They thanked him and made their way to a nearby town, where they could rest and plan their next move. They knew that they had a long journey ahead of them, but they were one step closer to freedom.
Chapter 4: The Journey Begins
The train ride to New York was long and uncomfortable, but Butch, Sundance, and Etta tried to make the best of it. They played card games and told stories to pass the time, but they couldn’t shake the feeling that they were being watched. They knew that the Pinkertons were on their trail, and they didn’t want to take any chances.
When they finally arrived in New York, they had to be careful not to draw attention to themselves. Butch had arranged for fake passports and travel documents, but they still needed to be cautious. They spent the night in a seedy hotel and planned their next move.
The next morning, they boarded a steamship bound for South America. As they sailed away from the United States, they felt a sense of relief. They were leaving their old lives behind and starting fresh in a new land.
But the journey was far from smooth sailing. The ship was overcrowded, and the passengers were a rough and rowdy bunch. Butch, Sundance, and Etta tried to stay out of trouble, but it seemed like trouble always found them.
One night, they were playing cards in the ship’s bar when a group of rough-looking men approached them. The men were drunk and looking for a fight. Butch tried to smooth things over, but one of the men pulled out a knife.
Sundance didn’t hesitate. He drew his gun and fired a warning shot into the ceiling. The men backed off, and Butch, Sundance, and Etta made their way back to their cabin.
The incident left them shaken, but it also reminded them that they couldn’t let their guard down. They were in a foreign land, and they needed to be prepared for anything.
As the ship sailed further south, they encountered storms and rough seas. The ship rocked back and forth, and many of the passengers were seasick. Butch, Sundance, and Etta weathered the storm, but they knew that their journey was far from over.
When they finally arrived in South America, they were greeted by a bustling port city. The sights and sounds were overwhelming, but they were also filled with excitement. They had made it to their destination.
But they knew that their troubles were far from over. The Pinkertons were still on their trail, and they needed to start their new lives carefully. They had a plan, but they also knew that plans didn’t always go as expected.
As they left the port and made their way into the city, they couldn’t help but feel a sense of trepidation. They were in a new land, with new challenges and new dangers. But they were also together, and they knew that they could face anything as long as they were by each other’s side.
Chapter 5: Life in South America
Butch, Sundance, and Etta had hoped to start a new life for themselves in South America away from the constant danger and threat of the law. However, things turned out differently as trouble followed them wherever they went.
As they settled down in a remote corner of Argentina, they decided to start a cattle ranch with the hope of living a peaceful life. They bought a spacious farm and began herding their cattle. But their new life was short-lived as their past caught up with them.
One afternoon, they were ambushed by a group of bandits who were after their cattle. Butch and Sundance were well-armed and quickly took the bandits by surprise. The two men showed off their skills as they expertly maneuvered their weapons to take down their attackers. Once the bandits were defeated, Butch and Sundance realized that they could not let their guard down.
As they continued running their ranch, their notoriety as outlaws spread, and it became increasingly difficult for them to remain anonymous. They kept a low profile, but their past was always on their heels. Some wanted to kill them for the bounty on their heads, while others simply wanted to be associated with them for their notoriety.
One day, while Butch and Sundance were making their routine check of the fences, they encountered a group of armed men. They were Pinkerton detectives sent by the American government to capture them. The detectives had traced them to their ranch, and Butch and Sundance were outnumbered. They had no choice but to fight.
The ensuing gun battle was vicious, and the outlaws fought valiantly, but their skills were no match for the well-trained detectives. Butch and Sundance found themselves surrounded, with no escape in sight. Etta had gone to the nearby town, leaving them alone to face the consequences of their past crimes.
Butch and Sundance knew that their time had come, and they decided to make a final stand, hoping to take some of their enemies with them. In a final showdown, the two men showcased their unparalleled skills with their guns as they fought fiercely to stay alive. But despite their best efforts, they were ultimately overcome by the sheer number of the Pinkerton detectives.
Butch and Sundance were fatally wounded in the shootout, and their bodies were left lying on the ground. Their dreams of a peaceful life in South America had been shattered, and they had paid the ultimate price for their life of crime.
Despite their violent end, Butch and Sundance would always be remembered as two of the most notorious outlaws in American history. Their lives had been full of adventure and excitement, but they could never outrun the law. The legend of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid would continue to captivate people for generations to come.
Chapter 6: The Final Showdown
Butch, Sundance, and Etta had been living in South America for some time now. They owned a small ranch and had managed to stay off the radar of the law. The three of them were happy, but they knew that their past would eventually catch up to them.
One day, while tending to their ranch, they noticed a group of soldiers approaching. The soldiers were led by a Bolivian officer, and they were searching for the notorious American outlaws, Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid.
Butch, Sundance, and Etta knew that they had to be careful. They had been living under aliases, and they needed to keep up the facade. But as the soldiers got closer, they realized that they had been found out.
Butch and Sundance quickly grabbed their guns and prepared for a fight. Etta tried to reason with the soldiers, but they were not interested in listening. They were determined to capture the outlaws and bring them to justice.
The soldiers surrounded the ranch, and Butch and Sundance knew that they were outnumbered. They decided to make a run for it, but they were quickly met with a hail of bullets. The soldiers were skilled marksmen, and they knew exactly where to aim.
Butch and Sundance returned fire, but they were quickly running out of ammunition. They knew that they had to think of something fast if they were going to get out of this alive. Sundance suggested that they make a run for it and try to escape through the nearby mountains.
Butch agreed, and the two of them started running. Etta stayed behind, continuing to fire at the soldiers to give them cover. Butch and Sundance managed to make it to the mountains, but they knew that they were being pursued.
As they ran, they could hear the soldiers getting closer. They knew that they had to come up with a plan or risk being caught. They decided to split up, hoping that the soldiers would follow one of them and give the other a chance to escape.
Butch headed in one direction, while Sundance went the other. The soldiers, seeing the two outlaws split up, had to make a choice. They eventually decided to pursue Butch, believing that he was the more dangerous of the two.
Butch managed to evade the soldiers for a short while, but he knew that it was only a matter of time before they caught up with him. As he was running, he came across a small cave. Thinking quickly, he decided to hide inside and wait for the soldiers to pass.
The soldiers eventually came across the cave and started searching inside. Butch could hear them getting closer, and he knew that he was running out of time. He decided to make a run for it, hoping to catch the soldiers off guard.
As he burst out of the cave, he fired his gun at the soldiers. They were caught off guard, and Butch managed to take out several of them. However, he was quickly outnumbered, and he knew that he couldn’t keep this up for long.
Just as he was about to be overwhelmed, Sundance appeared out of nowhere. He had managed to outsmart the soldiers and had circled back to help his friend. Together, they fought off the remaining soldiers, but not before taking several bullets themselves.
Butch and Sundance were badly wounded, but they managed to make it back to their ranch. Etta tended to their wounds as best she could, but it was clear that they were beyond help. They knew that their time was running out.
As they lay there, bleeding out, they talked about their lives together. They reflected on all the things they had done and all the people they had met. They knew that they had lived a full life, and they had no regrets.
In the end, Butch and Sundance died together, side by side. They had gone down fighting, and their legend lived on. Even though they were no longer alive, their story would continue to inspire others for generations to come.
Chapter 7: The Legend Lives On
The sun beat down relentlessly on the dusty plains of South America as Butch and Sundance made their final stand against the law. The posse had them surrounded, and there seemed to be no way out.
Butch, always the charmer, tried to talk his way out of the situation. He joked with the lawmen, trying to distract them and buy some time. Sundance, on the other hand, was deadly serious. He calmly took aim at anyone who came too close.
The sound of gunfire filled the air, and the smell of gunpowder was thick. Butch and Sundance fought with everything they had, but they were greatly outnumbered. It was only a matter of time before they would be caught or killed.
As the battle raged on, Etta watched from a safe distance. She could hardly believe what she was seeing. Her two lovers, both so full of life and adventure, were now fighting for their very survival.
Butch and Sundance moved with incredible skill and agility, dodging bullets and returning fire. They knew that this was it, their final stand. They were determined to go down fighting, as legendary outlaws.
Suddenly, Butch was hit. He stumbled and fell to the ground. Sundance quickly ran to his side, but it was too late. Butch was dead.
Sundance was filled with rage and despair. He knew that the end was near. He fired relentlessly at the lawmen, taking as many of them down as he could.
But finally, he too was hit. He fell to the ground, mortally wounded. The posse closed in, and soon it was all over.
Etta could hardly bear to watch as Butch and Sundance were loaded onto a wagon and driven away. She knew that she would never see them again.
But as she walked back to the ranch that they had shared, Etta realized something. Butch and Sundance may have been killed, but their legend would live on.
They had become symbols of freedom and rebellion, of living life on your own terms. Their story had captured the hearts and imaginations of people all over the world.
Despite their criminal actions and eventual demise, Butch and Sundance had become folk heroes, idolized by generations of rebels and outlaws to come.
And so, as Etta sat alone on the porch of the ranch, she knew that although Butch and Sundance were gone, their legend would live on forever.

It sure has, Butch.
Joe Lefors steps forward, gun in hand.
It’s over, Cassidy. You and your partner are going to pay for your crimes.
I don’t think so, Lefors. We’ve got a few tricks up our sleeves.
Sundance, his eyes fixed on the soldiers, suddenly twirls around and fires his gun, taking down two soldiers. Butch follows suit, shooting another two. The soldiers return fire, and Butch and Sundance duck behind a barrel.
