The Born Killer

It is November of 1963, and President John F. Kennedy has been assassinated. A few weeks later a Los Angeles television station has this movie on its schedule. Frank Sinatra, star of the movie, called the television station and requested that this movie not be shown . . . . And it was not shown. Later its copyright was not renewed possibly so that it would disappear and never be seen again . . . Frank Sinatra is a legend . . . An icon of music and movies . . . And I don’t think he wanted anyone to see his performance in this crime thriller. When it was filmed it was just a killer thriller with a twist . . . But with the assassination of President Kennedy, and the troubled times that have followed, up to this day it became a very toxic story . . . Because of the plot this story is controversial in troubled times. Crime thrillers made by Jimmy Cagney, Humphrey Bogart and other famous bad guys became very popular a decade earlier, but times, they are a changing. . . . And none of their story plots was like this one. I don’t know how the movie was received at the theaters in 1954, but a decade later, in 1964, the movie was recognized as too politically incorrect to survive. . . . And it remains controversial to this day. The town of Suddenly is a small and friendly village where everyone knows everyone else, and nothing exciting has happened in Suddenly for many years. In fact, the town is thinking about changing its name to ‘Gradually’ . . . Even wet paint takes longer to dry here. But this quiet summer Saturday things are about to change. The telegraph office fellow gets a telegraph and frantically tells his helper to get the Sheriff . . . And get him fast . . . The telegraph is from Washington D.C. and it is top secret confidential . . . It is a little after one in the afternoon on a lazy summer Saturday, but by 5pm everything will change. The small town people from the tiny village of Suddenly may never be the same again . . . If they survive . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
