Stars jimmy stewart. Interesting story. Not on DVD, only on cable. One of the movies that got me interested in guns.

From start to end only a few times.

From a middle to end several dozen times.

Been quite awhile, but yeah, I've seen it.

I've seen it. Interesting that gun was developed by a convict serving time.

Williams did NOT develop the M1 Carbine while in prison. He developed his idea for a short-stroke tappet piston while in prison. Winchester hired him to complete a carbine designe first begun by John Browning's half-brother. Williams was out of prison while working for Winchester.

Comes around regularly on TCM. Wish there were no commercials. You might try the Turner site and see if you can buy a copy there. I think they must own the rights.

Williams also spent a considerable amount of time at Aberdeen Proving Ground while working for Winchester, which is where my dad met him. Dad has a set of files (gun files, like for filing metal) that once belonged to Williams.

It's not on any format you can buy - vhs or dvd.

I'll have to keep watching the schedule for it. It's been awhile since I've seen it.
