Suggested Noir Double Feature

They Live By Night (1948) dir. by Nicholas Ray

Gun Crazy (1949)
dir. by J.H. Lewis

These are both predecessors to Bonnie and Clyde and deal with couples on-the-run with a fantastic film noir treatment. One has victims and the other has sinners and they are both awesome. They are only about an hour and a half each, so it makes for a great Sunday double feature. I will be posting an essay about the couple-in-crime genre sometime within the week or so.

These two black and white wonders will spread their silver beamed splendor (in 1:33 ratio) on the Thimble Theater screen in the future.
