| Peggie's a regular Annie Oakley
Lack of production values in this rather grim B western prevent me from giving it a higher rating, but this film might very well have been the inspiration for the Sharon Stone classic, The Quick And The Dead. A whole lot of B character players got into this film that lacks star power to say the least.

Peggie Castle plays the Sharon Stone part. As a child she saw her parents killed by the nasty father and son team of Francis McDonald and Earle Lyon. They run the valley and also abuse the daughter they have played by Barbara Turner.

The two also have fast draw contests held at Robert Lowery's saloon where Marie Windsor reigns supreme among the dance hall girls. That's where Castle comes in, she's trained for years as a fast draw artist giving exhibitions like Annie Oakley. All in the hope of facing and getting rid of McDonald and Lyon.

William Talman has the Russell Crowe part, he's another itinerant fast draw artist who comes to town. He's got his own agenda as far as Lyon and McDonald are concerned.

Joe Besser best known for a short stay with the Three Stooges plays a dramatic part here as Castle's manager. He's an alcoholic and Castle is concerned he spill the beans on the real purpose of her arrival in that town. It's a real revelation for those who only think of Joe Besser as a burlesque comedian.

Two Gun Lady is one misnomer since no one packs two sidearms in this film. Still it's an interesting western that will pique the interest if seen.
