    When gun fancier Bart Tare sees Annie Laurie Starr’s sideshow sharpshooting act, he’s a dead-bang goner. He and she go together, as Bart ultimately says, “like guns and ammunition.”The two become bank robbers on the run, eluding roadblocks and roaring into movie history as one of the benchmark film-noir works. Joseph H. Lewis directs this ferocious thriller, selected for the National Film Registry and often cited as a forerunner to Bonnie and Clyde. Peggy Cummins and John Dall star, meeting in a sexually charged carny shooting contest and soon driven by impulses of violence and arousal they don’t fully understand. They’re young, foolish, doomed – and point blank in Gun Crazy’s unforgiving sights.

    Excellent news - this will equal or better the French blu ray that came out five years ago. Only wish Warner Archive would stop using ALL CAPS FOR THEIR SUBTITLES!

    I can't wait to hear George Feltenstein's Podcast about this release to see if any upgrading has been done with this title. Of course, I suspect there has been some work done.

    Oh that sexy voice of Peggy Cummins, why wasn't she a big star?

    Great! Another DVD from my collection can hopefully be retired, as long as the transfer for the BD is done well.

    Interestingly, she even turned up in the 1958 horror classic NIGHT (aka CURSE) OF THE DEMON!

    I think what he's saying that see didn't achieve the status of someone like Deborah Kerr.

    I know what he's saying. I really liked her in the few films she made, especially Night of the Demon and comedy roles. She came across in interviews as a really nice person. A sad loss last year.

    So glad about this one. The French Blu-ray was WAY too expensive and the Spanish Blu-ray was undoubtedly a bootleg.

    I have the French Blu and it's pretty good - tons of opticals in this film.

    I'm betting this will be the HD transfer TCM ran tonight. People will be very happy.
