'''''Gun Crazy''''' is a 1950 FilmNoir directed by Joseph H. Lewis, starring John Dall and Peggy Cummins. It tells a story of an OutlawCouple of sharpshooters - a former soldier Bart and a circus performer Laurie. They are both obsessed with guns, but in a different way: Bart likes owning and shooting them, but would never hurt anyone living, while Laurie dreams of actually killing somebody. When they find themselves unemployed, Bart wants to look for a decent job, but Laurie seduces him into a robbery spree. Soon it ends up with murder, and they find themselves hunted by much more force they could ever outrun.
It had a loose remake in 1992 starring Creator/DrewBarrymore.
Not to be confused with the Japanese film series of the same name.
