Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid led the Wild Bunch through a series of bank and train robberies across the American Old West. Their exploits served as the basis for the 1967 Oscar-winning film Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, starring Paul Newman and Robert Redford.

Born Robert LeRoy Parker in Beaver, Utah, on April 13, 1866, the bandit who assumed the alias Butch Cassidy remains an icon of the Old West even 150 years after his birth. As with many legendary outlaws, Cassidy’s life was shrouded in mystery and folklore, but even murkier are the facts surrounding his death.
