Customer Review

on 21 August 2009
This was the must-see show that saw the homework pushed to one side for 50 glorious minutes. It's so long ago, that I used to watch it on black and white tv the first time around. Though many of us watched it again and again on later reruns and probably have a few woolly VCRs around - well apart from the later series (WHY are we waiting?!!), you can ditch those into the nearest charity bag.

Butch and Sundance showed the way for tv westerns to go - the genre had been hugely popular in the early 60s, largely thanks to the "new" ITV channels, who imported many shows such as Maverick. Constantly evolving with the times in which they were made, later favourites such as The High Chaparral emerged (and why is that not out on DVD, pray tell?) then Butch and Sundance blew us all away with it's fun take on the legend, and inspired tv producers to do something similar with AS & J

The real-life tragic death of Pete Duel left us with these matchless classics. Though Roger Davis did a great job, he could not hope to match Pete Duel's comic but thoughtful charisma. As for the super-gorgeous Ben Murphy - who now is probably retired (what a thought!) - posters of him adorned many a teenage bedroom up and down the land, and he was, in his time, as popular with the teen set as David Cassidy! What a guy!
