Kiss Me Deadly

Film Noir of the Week: Kiss me Deadly by Robert Aldritch from a script by A.I. Bezzarides based on the popular pulp/noir paranoia of Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer novels starring Ralph Meeker as Hammer and showcases a very young and sexy Chloris Leachmen in a small role. Her doomed female hitchhiker pulls Mike Hammer into a deadly whirlpool of intrigue, revolving around a mysterious "great whatsit." If you grew up under the immediate threat of nuclear warfare, this apocalyptic noir touched a nerve that you can't ever escape from. Without Kiss Me Deadly you get no Pulp Fiction from Quentin Tarantino.

Memorable Quote: "Wat's this all about? I'll make a quick guess. You were out with some guy who thought "no" was a three-letter word. I should have thrown you off that cliff back there. I might still do it. Where are ya headed?"
