Born to Kill

Buy Tickets

(1947) dir Robert Wise w/Claire Trevor, Lawrence Tierney, Walter Slezak, Audrey Long, Elisha Cook Jr. [92 min; 35mm]
This seedy film noir follows recent divorcee Helen Brent (Trevor) as she begins a torrid affair with Sam Wilde (Tierney), a man she knows to be a fiercely jealous murderer. Of course it can’t end well – especially when the sleazy couple become the victims of an even sleazier private detective and his blackmail scheme.
