Thrill Crazy, Kill Crazy

Gun Crazy is one of my fav. movies - and it just so happens it's featured on Noir of the Week. If you haven't seen it, make sure you rent it.

I left a comment here the other day but it looks like Blogger ate it.
After reading this post I knew I had to watch Gun Crazy again. I watched it this morning...the shooting contest...the bank robbery...John Dall's big old goofy,what one reviewer called, "Bugs Bunny," grin...the other robbery...the hokey leaving their cars and running to each other bit...the ending in the swamp.
Love this movie. :)

Isn't it great - a B movie that has moved to A over the years. I love the robbery scene where you watch from the back of the car. I think I read somewhere that that scene was pretty much "go with the flow." Worked great.

I love John Dall...unfortunately, he sure didn't make a heck of a lot of movies.

I know, I felt the same way about his lack of movies. When I looked him up at IMDb it says he died at age fifty. I was saddened by that.
