UNDERWORLD U.S.A.: THE PULPY HEART OF SAM FULLER CINEMA
Double Feature!
SHOCK CORRIDOR / FORTY GUNS
SHOCK CORRIDOR
1963, Ben Barry & Association, 101 min, USA, Dir: Samuel Fuller

A Pulitzer Prize-hungry journalist (Peter Breck) goes undercover in a mental institution with hopes of solving a murder case…but as the environment overtakes him, his insanity becomes more than an act. With Constance Towers, Gene Evans.


FORTY GUNS
1957, 20th Century Fox, 79 min, USA, Dir: Samuel Fuller

Director Sam Fuller had to sacrifice his original title, WOMAN WITH A WHIP, but kept everything else - from Barbara Stanwyck’s black-leather dominatrix gear to the film’s naked gun-lust (Her: "May I feel it?" Him: "It might go off in your face."). Still the most subversively entertaining Western ever made, a surreal dreamscape in which nothing is motivated by natural laws. With Barry Sullivan, Gene Barry. "It’s not even really a Western - I don’t know what it is... FORTY GUNS doesn’t care." - Martin Scorsese.
