john kelly dan curtis

(ABC, 4/9/1974, 90 mins). A breezy, fictional account of the dogged pursuit by cigar-chomping lawman Purvis of notorious public enemy Machine Gun Kelly throughout the Midwest in 1933. Writers John Milius and William F. Nolan draw Purvis as pure bravado swathed in a flamboyant fur-collared overcoat, and Kelly’s gang as a collection of inept buffoons. Syndication title: “The Legend of Machine Gun Kelly.”
