An icon of film noir, Kiss of Death (1947) tells the tale of a petty crook-turned-stool pigeon (Victor Mature, Samson & Delilah) who, in his attempt to go straight, finds himself stalked by a psycho killer, the notorious Tommy Udo.

Richard Widmark is Tommy Udo in Kiss of Death

One of cinema’s most frightening villains, Udo is incarnated in a startling début performance by the one and only Richard Widmark (Two Rode Together), whose career was launched here under the guiding hand of veteran director Henry Hathaway (True Grit). Shot in documentary style on location in New York City, the film also features a striking score by David Buttolph.
