NRPL Film Series: THE KILLING (1956)

Aided by a radically time-shuffling narrative, razor-sharp dialogue from pulp novelist Jim Thompson, and a phenomenal cast of character actors, Stanley Kubrick’s tale of an ambitious racetrack robbery is one of Hollywood's tautest, twistiest noirs. Starring Sterling Hayden, Coleen Gray, Vince Edwards; Directed by Stanley Kubrick – 84 mins.

This film is part of the Fall 2023 NRPL Film Series: FILM NOIR. In this series, New Rochelle librarian and film historian Chris Poggiali will introduce and discuss four classics of film noir, the moody, dark, and dangerous crime dramas that emerged from the Hollywood studios in the 1940s and ‘50s.
