BORN TO KILL, 1947, Warner Bros., 92 min. Dir. Robert Wise. Unquestionably the most depraved picture made in Hollywood in the 1940s, stars Lawrence Tierney (the meanest man in noir) as a homicidal social climber who meets his match in debased San Francisco socialite Claire Trevor. He marries her wealthy half-sister (Audrey Long), but carries on his torrid affair with Claire while tenacious detective Walter Slezak hunts him down.<br /> ODDS AGAINST TOMORROW, 1959, MGM Repertory, 96 min. Dir. Robert Wise. Bigoted ex-convict Robert Ryan’s mistrust of partner Harry Belafonte undermines the heist plans of their ex-cop leader Ed Begley, in this searing, underrated crime drama.
