Kiss Me Deadly

Lines like, “I don’t care what you do to me, Mike, just do it fast,” have kept audiences coming back for more Mickey Spillane for 60 years. Kiss Me Deadly, showing today at Domy Books’ Thursday Movie Nights, curated by the folks at Film Monitor, doesn’t disappoint. The 1955 film stars Ralph Meeker as the hard-as-nails P.I. Mike Hammer. A very young Cloris Leachman plays Christina, a mysterious hitchhiker he picks up. The ride gets a little bumpy when some thugs run Mike’s car off the road and kidnap Christina. 8:30 p.m. 1709 Westheimer. For information, call 713-523-3669 or visit Free.
