Kiss Me Deadly

I am not a particular fan of Mickey Spillane but in interviews he comes off as an interesting person and I avoided the Stacey Keach Mike Hammer even though I like Stacey Keach's acting chops most of the time, but none of that explains how I have had zero knowledge of Kiss Me Deadly. The whole thing looks and sounds like Perry Mason except everything is inverted on the right-wrong axis and pushed up the the violence scale. The common point is two points sleazeward of Paul by 36 degrees to the sexpot of Della. It scores surprisingly high on the Giant Robot Ant test with a .05 (most noir has undetectable amounts of Giant Robot Ant). Suffice to say, I liked it a lot.
