Rx Marks the Spot

For trouble she fits the description
He met her and had a conniption
When tempted by sin
the doctor is in
Her love is a deadly prescription

Charlton Heston is a doctor tempted by spoiled rich girl Lizabeth Scott in Bad For Each Other (Irving Rapper, 1953), which isn't really a noir. Sounds more like an update of The Citadel. Photo: Hollywood

If it's got Lizbeth Scott in a glowing metallic blouse, it's noir enough for me.

Walt, nothing has raised the ire of the Limerwrecks crew more than my writing limericks about Lizabeth Scott.
