Kiss of Death

Posted by martinteller on January 15, 2006

So-so noir, watchable but a little slow.  Victor Mature is excellent in the lead, but Richard Widmark (in his screen debut, for which the Academy nominated him) chews the scenery as the sadistic antagonist.  He calls people “squirt” about 50 times, which makes it really hard to take him seriously.  Rating: 6

Widmark, according to iMDB, is a fellow graduate of Lake Forest College, and even taught acting there for a while.
