    Description

    Gun Crazy (United Artists, 1949). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Long sought for its standout bad girl graphics, this gem just keeps getting scarcer and scarcer. The poster art delivers on every level, from the photo up left of the psychotic thrill seeking girl who still likes her hair pulled...to the stellar artwork of an "up yours" tousled blonde haired beauty, in a nappy beret, brandishing a smoking gun in each hand! Bart (John Dall), a gun-crazy kid, meets Annie (Peggy Cummins), a sharpshooter, at a carnival, and they soon get married. When it becomes apparent that Bart doesn't make enough money to satisfy Annie, she takes him along on a series of ruthless bank robberies, which, of course, leads to a tragic ending for the young couple. The film was originally released with the title Deadly is the Female but was pulled and rereleased several months later with the more exploitative title Gun Crazy! The restoration linen has been trimmed to the edge of the poster. There was only some slight foldwear.Very Fine on Linen.
