Description
Man hunter Christabel Caine (Joan Fontaine) sets her traps for Nick Bradley (Robert Ryan) and Curtis Carey (Zachary Scott) in director Nicholas Ray's scandalous tale of lust and betrayal, costarring Joan Leslie and Mel Ferrer. If Christabel ever drew an honest breath, she'd probably choke to death. Innocent and sweet on the outside, Christabel is a conniving liar who'll do anything to anyone for her own gain. Stealing away her roommate's fiancé (Scott) so she can marry him for his money, Christabel entices her former lover (Ryan) into continuing their affair, an act of reckless passion that could topple all her schemes. Noted for its biting dialogue and Fontaine's chilling performance as a ruthless femme fatale, Born to Be Bad is wickedly subversive, "a lively, vicious and daring film" (Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader).

    Comments about this product:

    Joan Fontaine portrays herself as innocent until her claws and fangs are exposed. This is a good life lesson...

    Joan Leslie is excellent again in this film. I enjoyed her portrayal as the spurned fiancé. Her dignity, from rejection to when she gains vindication of her better character, is one to be celebrated. Her style of dress is also excellent as she is beautiful in every outfit.

    Zachary Scott's portrayal shows a rich man who, despite his denial, always has his riches in the back of his mind. Scott plays well a weak man given in to easy manipulation thus displaying his weak character. Clearly, Joan Leslie's character is the best person for him.
