Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is a comedic western adventure based on the exploits of the historical characters. Butch Cassidy and Sundance are the leaders of the Hole in the Walls Gang, a group of famous bank robbers.

Butch proves his loyalty to his gang by winning the fight and successfully leading the gang in the robbery of the Union Pacific Flyer, a railroad train. The second attempt to rob the same train goes wrong with Butch using to much dynamite to blow up the safe and with the arrival of a security train which holds a special posses of men set out to track down Butch and Sundance.
