Attracted to one another partly by their shared love of guns, a couple turn to robbing banks when married life gets tough. This celebrated contribution to the love-on-the-run gangsters subgenre sees B-movie wizard Lewis pulling out all the stops to create a pacy thriller memorable for its intense eroticism, its amoral energy, and its highly expressive imagery. Cummins and Dall are electrifying.

The screening of Gun Crazy on Wednesday 12 June 18:20 will be introduced by Josephine Botting, BFI National Archive curator.
