Born to Kill

Finally saw this. Classic noir, '47.

Awesome! This image from here. So much gorgeous period typography.

Lawrence Tierney, wow. Love the scene where he's waiting in the darkened kitchen for his girl's new paramour. The poor little guy didn't know what he was dealing with, and the violence, though muffled for the code, is still a little sickening! It continues when Helen finds the bodies, shocking but obscured in shadows, and bails without a word. What a cold little snake!

Photos from this review. This movie has officially entered my library of favs.
