I feel the same way Anne. I'll pick Fiction everytime. Give me a Dean Koontz or James Patterson and I'm in heaven. I do however like Bio's from time to time.

I love both films (almost equally)But I have to say " The Killers ". Maybe because it's Lancaster's screen debut. The story in flashbacks is a plus. I do agree with Yvonne DeCarlo as a " better " femme fatale. The cast in both are great. I think I like the dialogue in The Killers a little more than ...

I just saw "Blood Diamond (2006)" forget Leonardo DiCaprio ( he was pretty good) but the real star is Djimon Hounsou who stole every scene he was in.

I agree with Eddie G. But also Claire Trevor as Gaye Dawn is amazing. Got to love the co-stars, some of my favorite charactor actors, Thomas Gomez and Dan Seymour and Marc Lawrence as Ziggy. The film is one of John Huston's best.

Can Not wait. I also refuse to get the Pacino version. If I hear "Say Hello to My Little Friend" again. I think I'll shoot someone. The Pacino version doesn't hold a candle against the orginal. IMHO

I taped this film from PBS channel 13 in N.Y. years ago and look forward to a real DVD copy of the film. Mainly do to a great Noir producer Mark Hellinger.
