This Gun For Hire


Join Mike and Dan for a conversation about This Gun for Hire, the 1942 breakout film for Alan Ladd and one of his many great collaborations with Veronica Lake. How the stars keep us fascinated by a plot so preposterous and how the writers of The Simpsons had to have this film in mind when creating Springfield's local villain come into play. So put on that gas mask and give it a listen!
