Movie Review: The Killers (1946)

Another old movie I watched for the fashions.

Movie:  7 (on a scale of -10 to 10).  Based on a short story by Ernest Hemmingway.  Starts out as a murder mystery, then becomes a heist mystery (is that a thing?) when it becomes clear that the murder victim was mixed up with some unsavory people.  The film was interesting and done well, and there were some really good shots. 

Fashions:  8 (on a scale of 1 to 10).  There's only one really notable dress, worn by Ava Gardner at a fancy party, but wow is it a showstopper, a black satin strapless-ish number with interesting draping around the bust. 

In short:  This one was actually pretty good and is definitely worth watching.
