When Lewis Teague directed Robert Forster in a short second unit scene for Avalanche (1978), two of them decided that if Teague got to direct a full movie, he would offer Forster a role. However, when the time came, Forster's agent thought the role of Turk was too small for him, and persuaded him to refuse billing. See more »

The 1986 UK VHS released by Eagle Crest Video is only 83 minutes long (86/87 minutes when converted back to NTSC) and uses a print that is missing all shots (and sometimes whole scenes) of sex and nudity, as well as some of the violence (e.g. Dillinger's bloody corpse). Note that these are not BBFC edits - they had already approved the film uncut for cinema release. See more »
If they had called it "The life of a Gun Moll", nobody probably would have gone to see it. So they went with the Dillinger angle, but forget it this is Pamela Sue's film.
If you ever wondered how "good little" girls end up being window dressing for some of the most notorious gangsters that ever lived, this film gives a good look at her rebellion against her strict religious up bringing and her descent into crime and prostitution.
Pamela Sue is so cute, you have a hard time believing she is a hardened criminal, but she just about pulls it off.
