A couple with a shared love of guns resort to robbing banks in this inventive gangster film.
Dir Joseph H Lewis
With Peggy Cummins, John Dall, Berry Kroeger
Drawn together by their shared love of guns, a couple resort to robbing banks when married life gets tough. B-movie wizard Lewis takes an archetypal rural-gangsters saga and transcends it by the sheer invention of his direction, highlighting the Freudian and animalistic aspects of the pair’s amour fou and making expert, eloquent use of extended takes and a foggy swamp finale.
