NOIR CITY 11: GUN CRAZY
Opening Night, Friday, January 25: Peggy Cummins in Person
Come early for an hour of pre-film entertainment, 7-8 p.m. in the Castro Theater auditorium, kicking off this year's festival. Then strap yourself in for the 86-minute adrenaline rush that is . . .
(1950, United Artists [WB], 86 min.)
This year's program blows out of the starting gate straight into fifth gear with the most audacious work of "outlaw cinema" made during the classic Hollywood era. Blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo blasts through the Production Code with the sexually charged story of naive gun lover Bart Tare, whose life runs off the rails once he meets the woman of his darkest dreams, carnival sharpshooter Annie Laurie Starr, portrayed in an all-stops-out performance by 24-year-old Peggy Cummins, delivering the most astounding depiction of erotically explosive female ferociousness ever committed to film.
NOIR CITY is honored to welcome Peggy Cummins as its guest of honor. She joins Eddie Muller for an onstage conversation immediately following the screening of Gun Crazy.
