Original Belgian Movie Poster (15x20) Fine Plus

This is an original RKO Belgian Poster (15x20) for the Robert Wise brooding film noir masterpiece, BORN TO KILL (1947) starring Lawrence Tierney, Claire Trevor, and Walter Slezak. This masterful study in corruption includes all the film noir staples: murder, lust, greed, and betrayal. Unlike most directors, Wise succeeded in almost every imaginable film genre, and he infuses this film with a remarkable air of depravity. Sam Wild (Tierney) is a greedy, lustful, and heartless sociopath who kills anything that gets in his way or upsets him. When he meets the shocking and disturbed Helen Trent (Trevor), he is sure she is the woman for him. Claire Trevor was the queen of noir femme fatales at the time and certainly gives one of her best performances ever. But the film belongs to Tierney, who terrified the audience with his evil eyes and hateful expressions. This original Belgian poster has completely different art from any of the U.S. posters, and it is very uncommon. It was never folded, colors are vivid. This is really one of the better examples that we have seen for any poster on BORN TO KILL. MovieArt Original Film Posters in Austin, Texas guarantees this poster to be authentic.
