It's Hammer's Time

A broad stops a car in the road
A clue to a black box that glowed

With crazed “Va-va-VOOM!”
it's violent doom
A world that is set to explode

Detective bereft of a code
about to be Los Alamo'd

He's sleazy and mean
and sneers at the screen
It's Noir in a nihilist mode

Robert Aldrich's
Kiss Me Deadly stars Ralph Meeker as sleazy bedroom dick Mike Hammer. It's one of the nastiest and greatest of all films noir. Welcome to Film Noir Week at Limerwrecks.
