The Killing + Killer's Kiss Blu Ray|
An ex-con a corrupt cop a reformed alcoholic a wrestler a sharpshooter and a pair of inside men: these seven men intent on executing the perfect robbery and taking a racetrack for two million dollars. But this is the world of film noir a tough sour place where nothing quite goes as planned… For his third feature Stanley Kubrick adapted Lionel White’s Clean Break with a little help from hard-boiled specialist Jim Thompson (The Killer Inside Me) and in doing so created a heist movie classic one to rank alongside John Huston’s The Asphalt Jungle and Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs. The robbery itself is one of cinema’s great set-pieces as taut a piece of filmmaking as you’ll ever find expertly controlled by Kubrick who called The Killing his “first mature work”. Starring Sterling Hayden (Johnny Guitar The Godfather) perennial fall guy Elisha Cook Jr (The Maltese Falcon The Big Sleep) and Marie Windsor (The Narrow Margin) as his duplicitous wife The Killing is quintessential film noir still as brutal thrilling and audacious as it was almost six decades ago.from£12.25 | RRP:

Double bill of classic thrillers directed by Stanley Kubrick. In 'The Killing' (1956), Johnny Clay (Sterling Hayden) gets out of prison after a five-year stint and begins to put together plans for a million dollar race track heist. As he gathers his crew together, it seems that Johnny's plan is fool-proof and is sure to go off without a hitch. However, when gang member George Peatty (Elisha Cook Jr) tells his wife (Marie Windsor) about the plans, and she in turn tells her boyfriend (Vince Edwards), the seeds are sown for the whole operation's undoing. In 'Killer's Kiss' (1955), boxer Davy Gordon (Jamie Smith) finds himself in a world of trouble when he intervenes and saves dancer Gloria Price (Irene Kane) from her seedy and violent boss Vincent Raphello (Frank Silvera). Davy and Gloria fall in love and plan to leave the city and make a fresh start, but Vincent is angry and jealous and sends his men to kill the young lovers...
