Gang Bullets

When the theaters were owned by the major studios in the 30’s and 40’s the price of a ticket got you a feature film, cartoon, news reel, and what is now called a ‘B’ movie. “Gang Bullets” is a ‘B’ film from Monogram, a top poverty studio of it’s day, and if this is judged against other ‘B’ movies it would fall into the top 20%. Starring ‘B’ actors Anne Nagel (a rare top billing for her), Robert Kent, and Charles Towbridge, the 63 minute film is a crime/gangster who knows the law all too well. The DA is trying to put him behind bars but seems hindered in his efforts until?

Directed by Lambert Hillyer under the watchful eye of Scott Dunplap the film moves along keeping your interest. Music director is Abe Meyer, who was the king in finding source material, and it worked in this film.

Since this film went into public domain there are less than copies available, some shortened. This includes the free internet archive whose copy is inferior to the one I purchased from Oldies.com which was around $5.00 including shipping. My copy is clearer with less background noise. When I finish 100 of these I’ll rank them. Right now this one is somewhere around #20. Will keep you posted.
