KILLERS, THE (1946) Set of 12 photos
THE KILLERS (1946) Set of 12 photos [Hollywood]: Universal Pictures, 1946. Set of twelve (12) 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) vintage original photos. Two with descriptive paper snipes on back, a few with perforated notices of approval by Board of Censors, generally near fine.
Robert Siodmak’s adaptation of this Ernest Hemingway Nick Adams short story starred, very early in their careers, Burt Lancaster (as The Swede) and Ava Gardner (as femme fatale Kitty Collins) in an intricately plotted film, with eleven separate flashbacks.
Silver and Ward, p. 153: “Initially the structure of the film isolates THE KILLERS from more conventional noir films. Utilizing a convoluted time structure, the story of Swede is unfolded in a series of disconnected flashbacks much in the same way as CITIZEN KANE.”
