Tired Old Queen at the Movies' Office

Last night I watched a favorite film Noir: BORN TO KILL (1947) starring Lawrence Tierney and the remarkable Claire Trevor. Directed by Robert Wise and featuring Elisha Cook Jr, Walter Slezak and a wonderful/boozy character actress named Esther Howard, it concerns a woman (Trevor) who is sexually attracted to a man (Tierney) because she knows he’s a sociopath. Tierney is coldly malevolent and Trevor is ruthless and fascinating. A kinky movie for the time it was made and well worth checking out.
