Butch and Sundance: The Early Years (1979): Richard Lester’s Prequel Western

Richard Lester directed the mediocre Western, Butch and Sundance: The Early Days, a prequel of sorts to the far superior 1969 Oscar winner, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

It stars Tom Berenger as Butch Cassidy and William Katt as the Sundance Kid.
