Kick-Back Friday: #12
Can’t get enough of that funky noir stuff. This week’s recommendation is The Killers* from 1946, based on Hemingway’s 1927 short story. Edmond O’Brien (D.O.A.) investigates the hit of a down-on-his-luck ex-boxer played by Burt Lancaster in his film debut. An ingenue from North Carolina is the femme fatale, making her transition into movie star Ava Gardner.
*Not to be confused with The Killing, Raphe.
