Kiss of Death

Directed by Henry Hathaway
United States, 1947
Drama, Thriller, Film noir


Based on a true story, Kiss of Death is given a veneer of reality by being filmed on location in New York, with a bare minimum of studio work. In one of his best performances, Victor Mature plays a cheap crook who is sent up the river for 20 years for robbery.
