Introduced by author Eddie Muller
(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 restoration.
Introduced by Eddie Muller, author and founder of The Film Noir Foundation, and host of TCM’s “Summer of Darkness,” airing every Friday night June 5 - July 31.
“The most exciting, dynamic and influential Noir movie ever made.” – Eddie Muller
“Among [the film’s] triumphs: a pair of object-hungry young marrieds fondling pressure cookers in a department store and shivering orgiastically while a hold-up goes on.” – The New York Times
“Lewis is firing on all cylinders, prompting his leads to a very real evocation of amour fou… Far more energetic than Bonnie and Clyde – the most famous of its many progeny – its intensity borders on the subversive and surreal.”
– Time Out (London)
