Malignant Obsession

With his culture and taste he'll impress her,
Then the vulture lays waste to possess her
But carbolic old elves
Just wants dolls for their shelves
The result is he'll never undress her.

Clifton Webb's Waldo molds, then wants to keep Gene Tierney's Laura (Otto Preminger; 1944). Title by magnificently indignant Norm Knott.

He's both a vulture and an elf? I've gone too far--metaphorically speaking.
