Billy Two Hats

This is a fresh, different oater (the first filmed in Israel) that opens with violence and contains some throughout but never lingers lovingly on mayhem and gore.

A Scot and a young half-Indian (Billy Two Hats, because his white father was an important man) commit a robbery with an unintended murder that nets them only $420. They get away, but the far-off Scot is shot in the leg with a buffalo gun. The lad makes a rough stretcher and hauls him behind his horse. They stop at the home of an old rancher with a young wife he’d bought for $100 in St. Louis.

Gregory Peck, almost unrecognizable behind a broad Highland brogue and a bushy beard, is splendid. Desi Arnaz Jr as the ‘breed’ treated with contempt by almost everyone, is okay and shows promise.
