Encore Westerns has the 1971 TV movie (actually, the pilot of the series), Alias Smith and Jones, at 5:00.  Inspired by the success of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, the movie (and series) is a buddy western that tells the story of two outlaws who try to go straight but have difficulties doing so seeing as there is a bounty on their head.  The title (and names of the characters) come from a comment in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid when, prior to one of their final hold-ups, the characters are outside a bank in Bolivia and Sundance turns to Butch and says: “I’m Smith and you’re Jones.”  The full episode is below.
