They Love by Night
Two innocents out for a ride
They're hardly a Bonnie and Clyde
The two become one
and find on the run
the love they have both been denied
They Live by Night (Nicholas Ray, 1946-9), starring Farley Granger and Cathy O'Donnell, was Nicholas Ray's debut as director, and the first adaptation of Edward Anderson's terrific novel, Thieves Like Us. Top: Screen capture from Only the Cinema.
