On right now as many of you know. One of my all-time favorite noir pictures. If anyone here hasn't seen this; stop, drop, and roll yourself in front of the TV.

 

Mike Hammer is without a doubt the toughest of all the noir P.I.'s, and this film is a timeless classic that has aged very well.

 

I actually have one of the original posters for this film. It's one of my most treassured pieces of classic cinema memorabilia.

 

Who else loves the look of this noir gem?

The film is one of my all time favorites. Apart from Ralph Meeker and Robert Aldrich's bravura camera angles, I like it for two reasons: 1) That for all his tough guy violence, Spillane's Mike is ultimately impotent in face of the new nuclear science (represented by 'the great whatsit') and 2) It gives us a chance to see the old Bunker Hill area of Los Angeles - including the old Angels' Flight funicular - before they flattened it for redevelopment.
