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.
TCM is having a Peggy Cummins tribute tomorrow. She not getting the Forever Amber role probably hurt her career here.Oh that sexy voice of Peggy Cummins, why wasn't she a big star?

Preorder Link added in first post as well as below. Amazon noted a May 28th release date which is a Monday so I think it's a mistake and that the actual release date is May 29th.
They're now showing a release date of May 8!
