The Killing is a 1956 film noir directed by Stanley Kubrick. The movie is based on the novel Clean Break by Lionel White. Sterling Hayden stars as Johnny Clay, a veteran criminal planning "one last heist" before retiring from crime and marrying Fay (Coleen Gray). The plan is to steal $2 million from the money-counting room at a racetrack during a featured race. Clay assembles a team consisting of a group of eclectic characters to help with the crime. Each person serves a specific purpose, including betting window teller George Peatty (Elisha Cook Jr.) A wildcard is introduced when George's wife Sherry (Marie Windsor), enlists her lover to steal the money from the group.
The artist captured the elements that make the movie a Film Noir classic perfectly! The skull in the smoke of Sherry's cigarette brings perfect symbolism to the artwork and the movie!
