What a Bad Dame!!!
Peggy Cummins is the epitome of the bad dame…..in a word, terrific. The casting of this British actress was probably chancy for director Lewis but he hit paydirt. She comes across as a woman who wants it all and doesn’t care how she gets it. Besides, she like to kill and wants to do “Just one more job.” The choice of John Dall for the male lead was even more chancy. Dall, a stage actor, certainly wasn’t very masculine and his acting revealed his stage background. But, again, Lewis hit the jackpot since it made the control that Cummins had over him even more believable.
The story has already been discussed on these boards so I won’t repeat it except to say that it moves along at a rapid pace and keeps you enthralled from the beginning (well, not quite. Forget the sappy prologue and get right to the story.) A lot has been said about the one shot (from the back seat of the car) bank robbery but it is dynamite. It is said that Dall and Cummins’ dialogue is improvised and that when you hear someone shout” The bank has been robbed”, it is an actual pedestrian who did not know that a movie was being made. Now that’s realism.
This little B thriller is as good as it gets and belongs right up there with “Detour”, the gem of low-budget films. Enjoy!!!!!!!!!
Gun Crazy is one Hell of a ride, that’s for sure!
Having finally watched this cult movie online, I’ll just say “Wow!” Also, how everything Director Joseph H. Lewis does scenes as well as how he handles leads John Dall and Peggy Cummins to their upmost best. Finally, how this is one of the greatest of the Film Noirs I’ve seen yet. So that’s a high recommendation for Gun Crazy. P.S. I also highly recommend Danny Peary’s review of this in his first of his “Cult Movies” books.
