Proceeding from the central premise of Ernest Hemingway’s very short story of the same name, this technically astounding, flashback-filled noir has two of the most memorable performances in the canon, from Burt Lancaster, as a boxer who makes too many bad decisions, and Ava Gardner, as a femme fatale who derives so much pleasure from being bad it’s almost unseemly.
