Butch&Sundance another version of the tale
If you're thinking you'll be getting those lovable rogues from Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid in Wyoming Renegades you'd be dead wrong. This Hole In The Wall gang features a mean, but very crafty Butch Cassidy in Gene Evans and a charming, but deadly Sundance Kid in William Bishop.
I will say that Evans and Bishop don't end up in Bolivia but they do come to justice in Wyoming Renegades. And it's all because they won't let gang member Philip Carey just go his own way.
Carey returns to his home town and just wants to open the family blacksmith business again after his stretch in prison. But except for the girl he left behind Martha Hyer and a stranger in town Douglas Kennedy no one wants him. When Evans and Bishop try to pull a holdup of the bank then they really don't want him.
Without name stars this western has a nice ring of authenticity even though the plot is totally made up. I liked how Gene Evans played Cassidy, he's one crafty villain and nobody's fool.
As for how he's gotten, all I'll say is there was one person that Evans never figured on for outsmarting him.
