Best effort to extract above ad from the gutter:




After an old war-time buddy meets a violent end, a brutish, tough as nails detective is soon neck-deep in a violent vendetta to repay an old debt to said friend, who saved his life during the war, by tracking down his killer and making them pay! Okay, when I think on the adapted adventures of that hard-boiled dick Mike Hammer, probably the last person I think of is Biff Elliot. But, he was the first to portray Mickey Spillane’s iconic private-eye in a movie that, alas, has never been released to home video in any format. I know I’m curious to see it, as it’s one of the few onscreen appearances of Margaret Sheridan as Hammer’s trusted secretary, Velda; and another B-Movie fave in Peggie Castle, who portrays the conniving psycho-analyst, Charlotte Manning. And, for the record, as much as I love Ralph Meeker in Kiss Me Deadly, my all time favorite version of Mike Hammer was Darren McGavin’s take in the old Mike Hammer TV show, something else that desperately needs a release for home-viewing as soon as possible.
