The Killers
Rated
This movie has almost nothing to do with its alleged source, the Hemingway short story, but it's a model B melodrama all the same, with a great premise: Two icy-cold hitmen decide to unravel the mystery of why their victim was marked for death. Siegel keeps it moving like a house afire; it's full of startling violence and perverse bits of character and atmosphere. As the gang chief whom the killers find at the end of the labyrinth, Ronald Reagan gives his last screen performance - and maybe his best. He gives a chilling authority to lines like "I believe in larceny, but homicide is against my principles."
