Robert Aldrich's Kiss Me Deadly is one of the great modern movies. Based on a Mickey Spillane potboiler, it chronicles the increasingly dangerous attempts of private eye Mike Hammer (Ralph Meeker) to locate a suitcase ("the Great Whatsit") that emits an ominous, unearthly glow when opened. The ostensible hero is an antisocial sadist, the location photography is outstanding, and the ferocious screenplay by A.I. Bezzerides sets the stakes no lower than the survival of the entire human race. Laemmle's Throwback Thursdays presents this late noir masterpiece in partnership with Eat/See/Hear.
