‘Born to Kill’

'Born to Kill'

“The way of the transgressor is hard.”
So a philosophical detective played by Walter Slezak quotes at the foot of Market Street kiddie corner from the southern Pacific Building after reading in the paper that his main antagonist, Claire Trevor, in a very unsympathetic role, has been murdered by her lover and partner in crime Lawrence Tierney. With the destruction of the Embarcadero Freeway, and the creation of a vintage streetcar line running along the waterfront, the foot of Market Street now looks very similar to the way it appears in the 1947 film ‘Born to Kill’.
