    Description

    Gun Crazy (United Artists, 1949). Folded, Fine/Very Fine. One Sheet (27" X 41"). From the collection of Leonard and Alice Maltin.
    A longtime favorite for film noir fans, Joseph H. Lewis' gripping crime drama recounts a classic tale of romance, philosophy, and firearms. Combining the genre's signature calloused edge with its own special brand of existential violence, Gun Crazy takes audiences on a white knuckled ride where one man's shifting morals wage war against sheer lust. A hit with critics from the get-go, the explosive impact of the film owes just as much to the story's savage twists as it does to the subtle, yet powerful, sensuality laced throughout Peggy Cummins and John Dall's performances. The movie's fierce intensity even bleeds into this poster's fantastic image, which displays such signs of use as edge wear, mild fold wear and separations, some creasing, and pinholes. There are faint stains, a couple of dust shadows, small chips, and minor tears. The poster also has a few thin surface scratches in Peggy Cummins' shoulder. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
