Quick Draw Charles McGraw

With jaw in a jut on his mug,
through noirs he would strut, a big lug.
For boss, Robespierre
he lacked savoir-faire,
and tortured poor Frenchman, le thug!*

*In The Black Book, aka Reign Of Terror (Anthony Mann, 1949), McGraw (above, far left, with Robert Cummings and Arlene Dahl) plays a henchman of Robespierrre during the French Revolution. To view an earlier McGraw limerick, click here
