Odds Against the Louse

He runs, but it's really to late
He's lost before leaving the gate
He's out of the race
Won't win, show or place
His handicap? Hobbled by hate

Waitress Shelly Winters is his long suffering girlfriend of racist Robert Ryan in the heist film Odds Against Tomorrow (Robert Wise, 1959). A decade earlier this noted Hollywood liberal had convincing played an anti-Semite in Crossfire (Edward Dymytryk, 1947). Both films costarred Gloria Grahame. Image source:
