|Description||Kubrick adopted a film noir style to depict the story of Johnny Clay (Sterling Hayden) and his team who have formed to rob a racetrack. The story is told from multiple viewpoints and there were worries about the use of non-linear chronology: an early example of Kubrick's pioneering film techniques. Released, 1956 by United Artists [RKO, in France]. The Killing was based on the novel, ' Clean Break', by Lionel White and the film was to originally have the same title. Screenplay, Stanley Kubrick.
