Description: Gun Crazy is a 1949 film noir feature film starring Peggy Cummins and John Dall in a story about the crime-spree of a gun-toting husband and wife.

"Nearly 20 years before the same themes powered Bonnie and Clyde, Lewis was on to the possibilities of 'outsider' cinema, and 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
