Henry Hathaway, director of True Grit, How the West was Won, Niagara, The Sons of Katie Elder, Shoot Out, The Black Rose, and Rawhide, delivers Kiss of Death. The storyline for this picture is awesome and unpredictable. The action scenes and dialogue are excellent and the cast delivers wonderful performances. The cast includes Victor Mature, Brian Donlevy, Coleen Gray, Richard Widmark, and Karl Malden.
"Imagine a guy like me getting picked up for just cutting the ears off a guy's head."
I DVR'd this picture after reading the synopsis while flicking through the channels. The plot sounded interested and I can tell you that it definitely is. I loved the evolution of the main character and this definitely ended up being way better than I anticipated. I strongly recommend seeing this gem.
