Swede’s Story

The Killers2016 2

Art Graeco’s homoerotic take on The Killers, a 1946 film noir of robbery, unrequited love, brutal betrayal and double-cross.

A doomed man, the Swede/Pete Lunn (Burt Lancaster), meets and falls under the spell of a fickle femme fatale, Kitty Collins (Ava Gardner) who comes to his hideout late at night and persuades him to steal the payroll… She later double-crosses him by stealing the money, ditching him, and rejoining her gangster boyfriend. Swede has lost the will to live and waits, alone in one room as his fate unfolds.
