Ernest Hemingway's The killers( Visual )

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

The secessionist fervor of the 1850s comes to California, and undercover Army officer Scott aims to thwart the separatist passions in The man behind the gun. There's Thunder over the plains and lightning in Scott's holsters in the second film. He portrays an Army captain assigned to a lawless area of Texas after the Civil War.
