The Big Gun

Detective Jonnie Kildare interrogates alluring Francine Evans as prime suspect in the murder of Howard Mulligan and must prove her guilt before he, and his camera operator, become her next victims. In this fast-paced, dialogue-driven homage to Film Noir, the gritty world of black-and-white collides with the vibrant landscape of color.
