  • Ernest Hemingway's The killers (1946 : black & white ; 102 min.) / Universal International ; Mark Hellinger Productions, Inc. presents ; Universal Pictures Company, Inc. ; screenplay by Anthony Veiller ; produced by Mark Hellinger ; directed by Robert Siodmak
  • Ernest Hemingway's The killers (1964 : color ; 94 min.) / Universal presents ; Revue Productions ; screenplay by Gene L. Coon ; produced and directed by Donald Siegel.
Ernest Hemingway's simple but gripping short tale is a model of economical storytelling. Two directors adapted it into unforgettably virile features: that was intended for television but deemed too violent for home audiences and released theatrically instead. The first is poetic and shadowy, the second direct and harsh as daylight, but both get at the heart of Hemingway's existential classic.

Video
1 videodisc (102 min.) : sound, color and black & white ; 4 3/4 in. Sound: digital; optical. Video: NTSC. Digital: video file; Blu-ray; all region.
"A feature-length documentary portrait of the New York artist Carolee Schneemann by Canadian filmmaker Marielle Nitoslawska. A pioneer of performance and body art as well as avant-garde cinema, Schneemann has been breaking the frames of the art world for five decades, in a variety of mediums, challenging assumptions of feminism, gender, sexuality, and identity. Utilizing a rich variety of film and hi-definition formats, Breaking The Frame can be described as a kinetic, hyper-cinematic intervention, a critical meditation on the relation of art to the physical, domestic and conceptual aspects of daily life and on the attributes of memory. It uses Schneemann's autobiographical materials to narrate the historic upheaval within Western art in post-war America. The film captures Schneemann in her own words, images and reflections, at work, at home, in the studio, and interweaves extensive film excerpts from her groundbreaking film work in both super 8 and 16mm such as Fuses (1967) and Kitch's Last Meal (1973-76), with documentation of performances including Meat Joy (1964), Interior Scroll (1975) and more recent museum commissions and exhibitions. ... The visual composition is complemented by a soundtrack featuring the music of composer James Tenney. Tenney was Schneemann's companion and collaborator for many years, and the two remained close friends until his death in 2006."--From breakingtheframe.com.

This story is about a very hearty poet named Vijay, played by Guru Dutt, who is talented at writing awe-inspiring poems with deep meanings. Out of tough luck, he is not able to pursue the publishers to publish his work. Because his family has a very low income, his passion for poetry becomes a luxury and an obvious reason for his brothers to oppose his work. His brothers want him to find employment so that he can support the family financially but Vijay's heart doesn't want to recognise this mundane issue. This is the reason why he resorts to alcohol as an escape from the mean world and ends up in a brothel. Here, he finds a professional prostitute named Gulabo, played by Waheeda Rehman. Gulabo is very different from other prostitutes and has a heart of gold. She listens to Vijay's poetry and falls in love with him. In the midst of this romantic setup, things go awfully wrong as Vijay is declared dead in a train accident. The real Vijay is thrown into a mental asylum for being persistent on his identity. His close friend and Gulabo are the only people who understand him and are the last hope for Vijay to help him officially claim his living status. Amazon.in
