We kick off Scalarama Leeds 2019 with a deadly double bill of B-movies. A film noir pairing that features two of cinema’s most iconic and unforgettable femme fatales, anti-heroines played with delicious deviance by Ann Savage (Detour) and Peggy Cummings (Gun Crazy). Both films transcended the boundaries of the B-picture to become cult masterpieces. With an intro by Alice Miller (She’s A Rebel), Detour is presented in a new digital restoration and Gun Crazy on 35mm.
