Talk:Killing, The (1956)
You beat me to it. Nice work. An under-rated movie in my opinion--Jcordell 23:18, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
How can you be sure that Randy Kennan's holstered revolver is a Colt Commando? It's never seen outside the holster and it could be any snubnose. User:jackbel
Should we really have the whole plot on the top of the page, I think it should just be a brief discription description instead of every event that happens in the movie. --SmithandWesson36 00:37, 24 December 2010 (UTC)
