Synopsis: Double Feature: POINT BLANK, 1967, Warner Bros., 92 min. Director John Boorman's neo-noir is also a brain-twisting deconstruction that changed the look of action films. Lee Marvin, seemingly back from the dead, is out for payback.
THE KILLERS, 1964, Universal, 93 min. Dir. Donald Siegel. This second adaptation of the Ernest Hemingway short story features Lee Marvin and Clu Gulager as hit men puzzled by the calm demeanor of their latest victim (John Cassavetes). The dead man held the secret to a million-dollar heist, and the missing loot draws the killers into the worlds of femme fatale Sheila Farr (Angie Dickinson) and mob boss Jack Browning (Ronald Reagan, in his final film role before turning to politics).
