Butch and Sundance: The Early Days

Kenner Action Figures

Butch and Sundance: The Early Days was the first of the modern-day prequels (this one to Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid). 
Tom Berenger and William Katt do a good job as Butch and Sundance, and at times Katt's resemblance to Robert Redford is uncanny. Likewise when Berenger wears his hat just so. Joining them are Peter Weller as LeFors (who ends their first encounter by saying ominously, "I'll see you again"), Brian Dennehy as a rustler out for revenge, Vincent Schiavelli as a casino guard, Paul Price (late of Lester's "The Ritz") as a stingy butcher, and John Schuck and Christopher Lloyd as a couple of bumbling outlaws. 

Kenner wanted to jump into western action figure toys and the line really is pretty nice, although small.  The figures included "quick draw" action - levers on the backs that could be flicked to make their right arms swing up with pistol drawn.
