Ernest Hemingway's gripping short story “The Killers,” which asks why a man silently welcomes his fate with the passivity of a man already dead, has fascinated readers and filmmakers for generations. In this classic tale of amorality, a claims agent investigates why a washed-up boxer invited his own murder. This first screen incarnation came in 1946, when director Robert Siodmak (Criss Cross) unleashed The Killers, helping to define the film noir style and launching the careers of Burt Lancaster and Ava Gardner in an archetypal masterpiece.
