I bet his gun is short too. My favorite Hammer movie (no, not THAT Hammer) is Kiss Me Deadly. I guess most men would love to have million dollar dames, a gun, and an attitude to make the other two work well together, but that age of movie mystique, with girls swooning over a macho macho man who hits as hard as he can take it, doesn't quite work with today's audiences unless the name is Bond, James Bond. The "Spillane Dames" are no longer a natural for excitement, and I can't say that's a sorry-to-see-that-go thing. As a period piece, it's engagingly "huh, they got away with that?"; as a plot enticement for today's audiences, it no longer has any worth or should have. But I still like to watch Mike Hammer bust it up with his fists and red hot lips.
