They fought the law and the law won.

Indeed guns don’t argue. Rarely have truer words screamed from a movie poster, and we’ve come across few titles more fitting for a crime film. What you get here is a narrated docudrama about how U.S. federal agents began to carry guns, and use them. In the past they hadn’t been authorized to do so, but faring poorly against machine gun-toting gangsters like Pretty Boy Floyd, John Dillinger, and Bonnie and Clyde changed that. Pretty soon we see g-men picking off criminals like tin ducks in a shooting gallery, and the narrator drones lines such as, “Like flies to a sticky bun the curious clustered at the sound of the excitement.” Mmm… sticky buns.
The movie was edited together from three episodes of the moralizing 1952 television series Gangbusters and released on the national b-circuit in September 1957. It’s as slapdash as it sounds, cheap as single-ply toilet paper, clumsily scripted, and hilariously acted by the likes of Jeanne Carmen, Myron Healey, and Lash La Rue. We recommend giving it a pass unless you want to subject it to the Mystery Science Theatre treatment—i.e. watch it with booze and smart-ass friends. But even if the movie purely sucks, we had to show you this poster. It’s quite a nice item. We have a zoom on sellingpoint Jeanne Carmen below. Guns Don’t Argue premiered in the U.S. this month in 1957.

Jeanne Carmen – the Mirror newspaper – new info on the death of Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe’s real name, wild conspiracy theories and chilling last conversation

Marilyn Monroe was Hollywood starlet whose iconic style would live on forever – but her tragic death and the bizarre circumstances surrounding it would remain a mystery

Pinup Icon JEANNE CARMEN is quoted extensively..

Chillingly, the Gentlemen Prefer Blondes star had previously discussed suicide with a friend, Jeanne Carmen.
A report claims Marilyn told her fellow actress that if she was going to take her own life she would “would dress in a white nightgown, take an overdose of pills and go to bed”
She added: “The sheets and spread would be white and she would have her hair and makeup done.
“A friend would be informed of the suicide to make sure that after her death she was neatly positioned and the bedroom was in order.”
But instead, Marilyn was found naked, wearing no make-up and with her hair a mess.

**UPDATE** JEANNE CARMEN as LILIBET in UNTAMED YOUTH.. Catfight

It has been suggested to me that PRINCE HARRY and MEGHAN MARKLE named their daughter LILIBET.. after Pinup Icon JEANNE CARMEN’s tough girl character in the classic teenage rock n roll flick UNTAMED YOUTH

So how did this come about?..

Rock N Roll Hall of Famer and Rockabilly legend EDDIE COCHRAN is in the movie playing BONG.. (a name that flew over the movie censor boards heads at the time) Lol

Eddie Cochran is and always has been a musical icon in the U.K. and is revered by millions of fans across the pond..

Eddie Cochran has influenced dozens of British artists from Paul McCartney and George Harrison of the Beatles.. to the Who.. to Led Zeppelin.. to the Rolling Stones.. to the Sex Pistols.. to Duran Duran and many more..

Eddie Cochran died in England in a car accident in 1960.. He was only 21 years old.. 1 week later Eddie’s new song Three Steps To Heaven went to number 1 on the U.K. pop charts.

Untamed Youth is Eddie Cochran’s only movie role (other than playing himself in musical appearances)

So it is very likely that Prince Harry saw Untamed Youth and remembered the name Lilibet and the sexy tough girl from the movie.

And it’s possible this is the source of the name Lilibet and that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle did not name their daughter after his grandfathers secret bedroom nickname for his grandmother.. the Queen of England..
