Trivia
Debut produced screenplay of a theatrical feature film for TV writer Allan Burns though the film of Burns script for A Little Romance (1979) was actually released first. Orginally, producer Steven Bach said of Burns being hired for this Butch & Sundance prequel: "The studio didn't want him. In their eyes, he was a TV writer. We said its him or no picture. They read the script on a Friday and by Monday they were offering him everything under the sun!".

Only four cast and crew worked on both this movie and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969). They included actor Jeff Corey, stuntman Steven Chambers and orchestrator Jack Hayes. Writer William Goldman was credited for characters from the first film and worked sparingly on the script as well as acting as an executive producer.

'Butch Cassidy' (Robert Leroy Parker) was so nick-named because he once worked in a butcher's shop whilst 'The Sundance Kid' (Harry Alonzo Longabaugh) was nick-named this because he once was arrested in the Wyoming town of Sundance.
