I love classic movies and have watched a lot of them but can’t believe that I have never watched a movie with Veronica Lake and Alan Ladd, until now. This Gun for Hire is a terrific movie about a hired killer with a soft spot. Veronica Lake sings two songs and she is mesmerizing. Robert Preston is also in it. Great story, great acting, especially by Alan Ladd in his first role. If you love classic movies and noir, you will love This Gun for Hire.
