Released on CBS/FOX.
Small Box - Retail Tape

Paul Newman and Robert Redford set the standard for the "buddy film" with this box office smash set in the Old West. The Sundance Kid (Redford) is the frontier's fastest gun. His side kick, Butch (Newman), is always dreaming up new ways to get rich fast. If only they could blow open a baggage car without also blowing up the money-filled safe inside. . . Or remember that Sundance can't swim before they escape a posse by leaping off a cliff into the rushing rapids. . . Times are a changing in the west and life is getting tougher. So Butch and Sundance pack their guns, don new duds, and with Sundance's girlfriend (Katherine Ross), head down to Bolivia. Never mind that they don't speak Spannish-they'll manage somehow. A winner of four Academy Awards® (including best screenplay and best song), here is a thoroughly enjoyable blend of fact and fancy done with true affection for a bygone era and featuring the two flashiest, freindliest, funniest outlaws who ever called "hands up!"
