Flick Review < Gun Crazy | Joseph H. Lewis (1950)

“Come on, Bart, let’s finish it the way we started it: on the level.”

Deadly Is The Female aka Gun Crazy (1950)
Director: Joseph H. Lewis
Writers: MacKinlay Kantor (screenplay), Dalton Trumbo (screenplay)
Stars: John Dall, Peggy Cummins, Berry Kroeger

“We go together, I don’t know why, maybe like guns and ammunition go together.”

In an interview with Danny Peary (Cult Movies, New York: Delacorte Press, 1981), director Lewis revealed his instructions to actors John Dall (Bart) and Peggy Cummins (Laurie Starr):

I told John, "Your cock's never been so hard," and I told Peggy, "You're a female dog in heat, and you want him. But don't let him have it in a hurry. Keep him waiting." That's exactly how I talked to them and I turned them loose. I didn't have to give them more directions.
