Pulp Fiction Thursday: Born To Kill

It’s film noir time at First Draft.Born To Kill is a personal favorite of mine. Lawrence Tierney is the chillingly heartless villain and Claire Trevor is awesome as the socialite femme fatale. It’s a must see, y’all. Great tag line and fabulous supporting cast; especially Walter Slezak as a sleazy PI and Elisha Cook Jr as Tierney’s toady.

Another notable name in the credits is director Robert Wise. In 1947 when Born To Kill was released, and into the 1950’s, Wise specialized in hardboiled and dark filmic fare. He is now best known for <sigh> The Sound Of Music. The hills are fucking alive with the sound of motherfucking music…
