Guns in Film

When did guns become pervasive in film?  Perhaps earlier than you imagine….

This is a shootout scene from The Great Train Robbery (1903).

Milos Stehlik, of Facets in Chicago, considered the portrayal of guns in film recently on WBEZ’s Worldview.

Students in HIST 390 History and Film: War in Film may want to check out his piece online at Worldview.
