KILLERS, THE (1946)
This film has been called the CITIZEN KANE of film noir. It's all here: murder, betrayal, lust, flashbacks, sumptuous visuals, double- and triple-crosses, whipcrack dialogue... and sexy young Burt Lancaster and Ava Gardner, erupting into stardom. (Note courtesy of Noir City.) DIR Robert Siodmak; SCR Anthony Veiller, from the story by Ernest Hemingway; PROD Mark Hellinger. U.S., 1946, b&w, 103 min. NOT RATED
