In real-life, and in the film, Butch Cassidy was well-loved by ordinary American citizens, who viewed him as a folk hero. During his criminal career, he never committed a murder and was known to treat his victims well. The Sundance Kid, also considered a folk hero, was known for his quick-draw abilities and sharp-shooting skills. In the film, Butch, the over-the-hill visionary, and leader of the Hole in the Wall Gang, and the Sundance Kid, are friendly, lighthearted, train robbers. When the film starts they have a decision to make: to spend the rest of their days on the run, in jail, or to settle outside of the United States.
