'The Killers'

Our next story/film will be Ernest Hemingway's The Killers. This story can be found in many short story anthologies. It is emblematic of Hemingway's spare style and emphasis on dialogue. Ask the librarian for a copy of the story -- it'll take you five minutes to read, but perhaps longer to figure out.

Wednesday, Aug. 26 at 6:30 p.m., we will be screening the 1964 version of the film, which is part of the Criterion Collection. It stars Lee Marvin, Angie Dickinson and John Cassavetes. It also stars Ronald Reagan as a gangster!

As always, there will be popcorn.
