Annotation

Film study tracing the theme of heroic fatalism (dignified acceptance of one’s destiny) found within the three screen adaptations of Hemingway’s story. Opens with a brief publication history and a recap of the real-life events that inspired the story before examining each of the three films: Siodmak’s 1946 film noir version, Tarkovsky’s 1956 black-and-white short, and Siegel’s 1964 made-for-television version. Compares the three and briefly analyzes how each diverges from Hemingway’s original text.
