SYNOPSIS

A rough-and-ready B-movie, Gun Crazy may lack some of the glistening polish found in major studio noirs, but it more than makes up for it with its sheer pulpy energy. A young gun-loving couple go on a crime spree and end up fugitives from the law. The film features a script co-written by the then-blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo. A prototype for future couple-on-the-run movies such as Bonnie and Clyde 1967, Gun Crazy is filled with an audacious zeal that makes it a thrilling entry to the American crime film canon.
