Ernest Hemingway's The killers( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 62 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."--Container

"Frustrated artist Bernie Samuelson takes a job as the ceramics counselor at Camp Lakeside. The work is unexciting, but he takes heart in the fact that one of his students, Aaron Gold, shows great promise as a sculptor. However, Aaron is decidedly un-athletic, and a conflict arises between Bernie and Lefty, the swimming instructor, because Aaron's devotion to his sculpture makes him habitually late for his swimming class. The head of the camp, Lionel Stern, takes Lefty's side, and exerts pressure on Bernie to see to it that Aaron spends less time on his sculpture--but that he nonetheless have it completed before parents' visiting day"--Alfred Hitchcock teleguide / by Howard H.
