About this item
In this atomic adaptation of Mickey Spillane's novel, directed by Robert Aldrich ("What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?", "The Dirty Dozen"), the good manners of the 1950s are blown to smithereens. Ralph Meeker ("Paths of Glory", "The Dirty Dozen") stars as snarling private dick Mike Hammer, whose decision one dark, lonely night to pick up a hitchhiking woman sends him down some terrifying byways. Brazen and bleak, "Kiss Me Deadly" is a film noir masterpiece as well as an essential piece of cold war paranoia, and it features as nervy an ending as has ever been seen in American cinema.
