Lancaster in Criss Cross
Burt Lancaster, an unforgettable presence
The Filmoteca de Catalunya offers a retrospective on one of the greatest American actors of all time, Burt Lancaster. Beginning your career alongside Ava Gardner in the 1946 film noir The Killers is not a bad way to start out at all, and from there things only got better, going on to win an Academy award for his performance in Elmer Gantry.
Showing is The Killers (an adaptation of Ernest Hemingway's short story), the 1954 Western Vera Cruz, the film Lancaster said was his least satisfying The Unforgiven and the dark tale Criss-Cross which saw Lancaster work together again with the creators of The Killers.
All films will be shown in the original English language with Spanish or Catalan subtitles. For more information and to see the programme click here. The usual €4 entry applies.
