KISS OF DEATH (1947) (SPECIAL PROMOTION) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Victor Mature, Brian Donlevy, Karl Malden, Richard Widmark, Coleen Gray, Taylor Holmes, Mildred Dunrock
Directed By:  Henry Hathaway
Composed By:  David Buttolph

“A pip of a melodrama…With a script by Ben Hecht and Charles Lederer to go by, Henry Hathaway has squeezed every last drop of suspense out of the story through his carefully paced direction…Mr. Widmark runs away with all the acting honors.”
– The New York Times

“A classic, vintage Hollywood crime thriller, one of the film noirs that everyone has to see – to savor Hecht’s [and Lederer’s] smart script and Hathaway’s taut direction, and to enjoy the terrific work of the entire killer cast and company. But mostly, you have to see it for Widmark.”
– Mike Wilmington, Film Noir Blonde

An icon of film noir, Kiss of Death (1947) tells the tale of a petty crook-turned-stool pigeon (Victor Mature) who, in his attempt to go straight, finds himself stalked by a psycho killer, the notorious Tommy Udo. One of cinema’s most frightening villains, Udo is incarnated in a startling début performance by the one and only Richard Widmark, whose career was launched here under the guiding hand of veteran director Henry Hathaway. Shot in documentary style on location in New York City, the film also features a striking score by David Buttolph.
