Shoot Out

Shoot Out is a 1971 Gregory Peck Western. This is a traditional revenge western with the addition of a little girl. I don't usually like westerns that feature kids, but this is a delightful character in a movie worth watching.

The NYT has a mixed review, calling it " no more than another variation of the eternal tale of the Westerner (Gregory Peck) released from prison who seeks revenge on the pal who betrayed him".


  1. Goodness! Watched this one, too. Over the top bad guys and pretty routine plot, but I always liked Gregory Peck. And the little girl was pretty good, too. :)

    1. Yes, I was surprised I liked this one. I'm glad you did, too :)
