GUN CRAZY

New restoration
(1949, Joseph H. Lewis) A bank robbery shot from inside the getaway car in a single take, as vicious carny girl Peggy Cummins leads good-hearted gun buff John Dall into a life of crime.  Approx 86 min. DCP.
2:00, 5:30, 9:15

 

“Magnificently enjoyable... While 1940s cinema was packed with devious dames, few can match Cummins’ hellcat sharpshooter for sheer manipulative allure.”
Tom Huddleston, Time Out (London)

DETOUR

(1945, Edgar G. Ulmer) “Whichever way you turn, Fate sticks out a foot to trip you.” New York to L.A. hitchhiker Tom Neal’s pickup of the aptly-named Ann Savage leads to blackmail and death. “One of the defining films of the seductive genre called Film Noir.” – Vincent Canby, New York Times. Approx. 69 min. Rare 35mm print.
