Gun Crazy (Joseph H. Lewis, USA, 1950)

Nearly 20 years before the same themes powered Bonnie and Clyde, Lewis was on to the possibilities of “outsider” cinema & his film is all the more subversive for its origins as raw pulp, unpoliced by the Hollywood system, and getting away with murder.
— Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph

A well meaning crack shot husband is pressured by his beautiful marksman wife to go on an interstate robbery spree, where he finds out just how depraved and deadly she really is. A huge influence on both the French New Wave and New Hollywood. 

Screened in tribute to Peggy Cummins (1925-2017)
