2 comments on “Review: The Killing (1956)

  1. I was introduced to‘The Killing’ by my old man, and I find it endlessly re-watchable. Unlike some people I don’t have a problem with the occasional voice overs, for me they heightened the tensions amongst the members of Johnny Clay’s crew. Though each has a function within the heist. Each one’s underlying agendas spell trouble.
    Sterling Hayden, Elisha Cook, Jr. and Marie Windsor rock out loud. Timothy Carey’s just plain creepy. And the film’s grittiness, unusual locations and mistrust of all involved is very much like Huston’s ‘The Asphalt Jungle’.
    Great review, I really enjoyed it!
