Enjoying The Film, “The Killers,” On TCM

August 9, 2019

Last night TCM aired the movie that launched the career of two huge stars, Burt Lancaster and Ava Gardner, as part of a night of tribute to Ms. Gardner.

The film, “The Killers,” from 1946, loosely based on an Ernest Hemingway story directed by Robert Siodmak and produced by Mark Hellinger, was Lancaster’s debut and Ava Gardner’s first choice role.

Each excelled as did Edmond O’Brien, Albert Dekker and Sam Levine. The entire cast was excellent.

That coupled with a mystery type story, that weaves through time, makes “The Killers” a truly gripping film.

 

A truly great individual, ahead of his time, Burt Lancaster, pictured above.
