The Devil Thumbs a Ride (1947)

 

Lawrence Tierney (1919-2002),

was a legendary Hollywood tough guy, on and off the screen,

and was notorious for his frequent, well-publicised barroom brawls,

including being stabbed in 1973.

 

He was best known as the title character

in Dillinger (1945) and Born to Kill (1947).

 

Tierney is pictured here as Steve Morgan, the brutal killer,

in a studio portrait for The Devil Thumbs a Ride.

 

His career was rejuvenated in 1992

when Quentin Tarantino cast him as Joe Cabot

in Reservoir Dogs
