Movie Info

In a rather offbeat outing for Gregory Peck, this is a Western filmed in Israel about a middle-aged Scot and a half-breed Native-American who are on the run from the law, in the form of a relentless lawman, for bank robbery. This unusual role for Peck was surprisingly well received.

With In the Heat of the Night director Norman Jewison serving as a producer, it's no surprise that the movie attempts to deal with matters of racism, but good intentions aren't enough to distinguish this ordinary oater.

Audience Reviews for Billy Two Hats (The Lady and the Outlaw)

Amazing...Gregory Peck never sucked! Offbeat but very good, not your average shoot em up. Incredible scenery, well shot and great character actors make this a good one!

This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. All I have to say mainly is that this was not good and just plain boring. 0 STARS!!!!

The film opens with a wonderful gunfight, well-shot and restrained. But as the plot is set in motion, Billy Two Hats falls victim to bland directing and some pitiful performances. The young Desi Arnaz Jr. and the infallible Gregory Peck are both rigid and boring to watch. Burt Ward offers a strong performance, but after the first few sequences he is pretty withdrawn from the film. The story becomes more outlandish and lame, but I feel it's a rather rich narrative that was undertaken by a poor director. Some cool costume design, a few moments of suspense, but certainly not the best of the western genre.
