Created by acclaimed detective noir author Mickey Spillane, private eye Mike Hammer (Stacy Keach) is a hard-boiled, two fisted detective who mixes it up with tough guys on a mission, clean and dirty cops on the beat and drop-dead gorgeous dames with plenty of attitude. A steamy throwback to the classic film noir thrillers of the '50s, Mike Hammer is one tough cookie.
Since his debut in author Mickey Spillane's 1947 crime novel I, JURY, fictional character Mike Hammer has served as the archetype of hardboiled detectives. And of all the film, radio, and television portrayals of the iconic gumshoe, none remains more definitive than Stacy Keach's starring turn in the classic 1980s TV series MICKEY SPILLANE'S MIKE HAMMER: PRIVATE EYE. Directed by Ted Lange (Isaac of LOVE BOAT fame), the series employed a superlative moody style that harkened back to the golden age of film noir and provided the perfect backdrop for the crime-solving adventures of the no-nonsense private eye. Take a nostalgic trip back to Mike Hammer's shadowy world of sleazy tough guys and femme-fatale dames with this thrilling collection of 26 full-length episodes from the sadly short-lived series.
