This summer, the Gregg Museum of Art and Design will screen three films relevant to objects in the museum’s diverse and extensive permanent collection. The first film, The Killers, is a 1946 film noir based in part on the 1927 short story of the same name by Ernest Hemingway that focuses on an insurance detective’s investigation into the execution of a former boxer by two professional killers. The film stars North Carolina native Ava Gardner in her breakout role as Kitty Collins. In promotional images for the film, Gardner dons a pair of brown suede elbow-length gloves that are now part of the Gregg Museum’s permanent collection. To learn more about these gloves, check out this December 2022 article in Walter magazine.
