Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer: The Complete Series
New York City. 1958. In these concrete canyons, everybody's got an angle: The beauty with the sob story who killed her old man. The harmless geezer who's in bed with the mob. The kidnapped broad who's really a fraud. When a case gets too twisted for the cops, only one man can straighten it out: two-fisted gumshoe Mike Hammer.
Created by legendary crime novelist Mickey Spillane, Mike Hammer was brought to television for the first time in 1958, with Darren McGavin (Kolchak: The Night Stalker, A Christmas Story) as the hardboiled private eye. Pummeled for its "excessive and gratuitous violence" (by 1950's standards), the show was, nevertheless, instantly successful - thanks, in part, to McGavin's tongue-in-cheek charm.
Here for the first time on DVD is the complete 78-episode run of the groundbreaking series Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer, featuring the original jazz theme, Riff Blues and an unforgettable cast of conmen, crooks, killers and femmes fatale.
