Law Building

Sunday's screening introduced by Michael Bergeron, Free Press Houston

Ralph Meeker stars as private detective Mike Hammer, whose decision to pick up a distressed young hitchhiker (Cloris Leachman) sends him down a terrifying path.

“Kiss Me Deadly is a film-noir masterwork 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.”
—criterion.com

“If Kiss Me Deadly were a brand-new film, it would still be shocking in its mean spirit, its happy brutality, and its audacious mix of real and surreal elements.”
San Francisco Chronicle
