Episode 20: Gun Crazy

Gun CrazyThis week, we watch the 1950 bank-robbing love story, Gun Crazy, aka Deadly Is the Female!

We highly recommend you watch the film before listening to the episode, because it’s great, and we discuss it at length. This film is currently available on iTunes and on DVD. (There are also a few stray copies streaming online dubbed into various languages, but you’re probably just better off paying three bucks to Apple.)
