The Killers, the Movie

The Killers

1946

Director:
Robert Siodmak
 
Screenplay:
Anthony Veiller
 
Cast:
Burt Lancaster, Ava Gardner, and Edmond O'Brien
 
Overview:
Two hit men arrive in a small town to kill boxer Lancaster. He doesn't resist, and the script details his past connections with crooks and criminal hangers-on such as the seductive Gardner. Closer to Ernest Hemingway's original story than the 1964 remake. Lancaster and Gardner are particularly good.
