Burt Lancaster in "The Killers"
The Big Fight, one of the news photographers' favorite subjects, as seen in Mark Hellinger's production of "The Killers," is incidental to the principle events of that Hemingway story - yet Producer Hellinger filmed his brief ringside scenes with shattering realism. Introducing Burt Lancaster, ex-G.I., circus acrobat, and Broadway discovery, to movie audiences in the role of "Swede," pugilist who turns gangster and racketeer, Hellinger accomplishes both a scoop in personality discovery and a memorable fight sequence. Here Lancaster takes a body blow from the assailant who convinces "Swede" it's time to hang up his gloves. Lancaster co-stars with Edmond O'Brien and Ava Gardner in the film., 1946, Digitizing agency: University of Missouri--Kansas City. Library. Dr. Kenneth J.
