Ernest Hemingway's The killers( Visual )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ernest Hemingway's simple but gripping short tale "The Killers" is a model of economical storytelling. Two directors adapted it into unforgettably virile features: Robert Siodmak, in a 1946 film that helped define the noir style; and Don Siegel, in a brutal 1964 version that was intended for television but deemed too violent for home audiences and released theatrically instead. The first is poetic and shadowy, the second direct and harsh as daylight, but both get at the heart of Hemingway's existential classic
Shelley : also known as Shirley by Shelley Winters( Book )

10 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and Undetermined and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The electrifying and outspoken memoirs of an earthy and unusually intelligent actress. In a book as gutsy as the lady herself, Shelley Winters tells of the street-smart kid from Brooklyn who crashed Hollywood as a harem-girl sexpot. The Blonde Bombshell fought to make it as a serious actress and walked off with two Oscars. With exciting romances along the way--Lawrence Tierney, John Ireland, Errol Flynn, Burt Lancaster, Marlon Brando, William Holden--ending with her explosive and violent marriage to Italian actor Vittorio Gassman, she tells of her struggle for a successful career and a happy home life. Her book crackles with rich humor; it reads like a novel, with continuing characters like her roommate Marilyn Monroe, her Actors Studio buddy James Dean, her friend and sometimes romantic interest Farley Granger, mentors Max Reinhardt, Lee Strasberg, and Charles Laughton, and her loyal sister Blanche. With an overall warm Jewish family feeling, she describes bosses like Harry Cohn and Howard Hughes (she liked them both, though Harry fired her as a failed sex object), respected coworkers like Ronald Colman, Montgomery Clift, and Robert Mitchum, and directors like George Cukor, George Stevens, and Paul Mazursky. This is a courageous and honest book in which one of America's favorite personalities levels with the reader about the content and meaning of her life.--Adapted from dust jacket
