The Killers

105 minutes 2013

Robert Siodmak's atmospheric 1946 rendition of Ernest Hemingway's classic short story proved a success for the young Burt Lancaster, playing an ex-fighter who double-crosses the fixers and ends up the target of reprisal. Siodmak evokes an atmosphere of impending disaster, and as the insurance investigator assigned to the case (Edmond O'Brien) pieces together the story of the fighter's rise and fall from grace with the mob, the film becomes an example of film noir at its most expressive.
