Storyline

Davey Haggart is quite certain of his paternity (even if nobody else is) and determined to emulate his father, a notorious rogue and highwayman. This includes breaking a man out of Stirling jail, holding up the stagecoach, and robbing the Duke of Argyll, among other feats. Unfortunately, he is handicapped by the fact that his childhood playmate Annie is equally determined to track him down and save his soul... Written by Igenlode Wordsmith

Trivia

In a 2006 interview, Anjelica Huston said she hated the conditions in which she appeared in this film so much that she had massive disagreements with her father, director John Huston, to the point that the pair fell out until their next film together, Prizzi's Honor (1985), fifteen years later.

Ordinary Decent Scotsman
17 July 2000 | by (Bruges, Belgium) – See all my reviews

SINFUL DAVEY is based on the true story of Scottish highwayman and thief Davey Haggart (played by a very young John Hurt), who wants to be just like his deceased (guess how he died) father.

It is a light-hearted movie that really is neither very spectacular nor special, but is very well-done. A nice movie to see on a rainy afternoon, to say it with a cliché. The film has good performances all around (especially Hurt and Franklin) and some funny bits. It is however nowhere near as funny as the recent ORDINARY DECENT CRIMINAL (also based on a true story).6/10
