Butch and Sundance: The Early Days

Butch and Sundance: The Early Days

Director: Richard Lester Cast: William Katt, Tom Berenger, Brian Dennehy

DVD (Wide Screen)


This "prequel" to the Newman/Redford vehicle Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid was written by TV sitcom veteran Allan Burns and stars Tom Berenger as Butch and William Katt as Sundance. The film, per its title, traces the formative days of Butch and Sundance's careers as soft-hearted western outlaws, and their creation of the Hole-in-the-Wall Gang. There's no Etta Place this time around; the fictional heroine, named Mary, is played by Jill Eikenberry. Only Jeff Corey, as Sheriff Ray Bledsoe, repeats his role from the original film.

The best thing about this movie is watching Tom Berenger and William Katt imitating Paul Newman and Robert Redford. Berenger and Katt must have stayed up really late trying to capture the exact movements and inflection of Newman/Redford. Katt does it well, but Berenger really shows his acting talent, even managing to get Newman's voice right. It's kinda hilarious but actually fascinating.
