KILLING, THE (1956)

Intro by film noir scholar Foster Hirsch on Oct. 14; intro by Montgomery College film professor on Oct. 18

Ex-con hard case Sterling Hayden assembles a crew of colorful lowlifes to pull off a daring daytime racetrack heist. Poor judgment, bad luck and a faithless wife conspire to undo their big score, and as things fall apart, this time-fractured puzzle of a story comes together. The screenplay was co-written by Stanley Kubrick and pulp great Jim Thompson, with sharp cinematography by Lucien Ballard. DIR/SCR Stanley Kubrick; SCR Jim Thompson, from the novel "Clean Break" by Lionel White; PROD James B. Harris. U.S., 1956, b&w, 85 min. NOT RATED
