Tonight at 11:30pm, Turner Classic movies is showing "The Killers". Based on a short story by Ernest Hemingway, the movie stars Burt Lancaster and the gorgeous Ava Gardner. The director, Robert Siodmak, re-teamed with Lancaster three years later in another good noir called "Criss Cross". If you get TCM, I suggest you check it out.
