A gun fires through a half-opened door. A one-arm dying man crawls towards the camera while the chair where his prosthetic arm lies moves back unabling him to reach it. In the next scene a man climbs up the stairs to find his army pal shot dead. This is the first Mike Hammer film in 3D and must be seen in 3D to really appreciate its quality. Fortunately there is an exceptionally well restored 3D version that makes of this film a rare noir gem. John Alton photography is breathtaking, especially in the zenithal shots - view from the top of the Bradbury Building (that has appeared in many other films such as D. O. A.) is simply stunning in 3D - and use of shadows. Light contrasts are superb. Although Alton won an oscar for An American in Paris his photography work for black and white movies is powerfully shocking.

No "tricks" here like a fire torch splashed into the camera eye. Any 3D detractor should watch this movie. Not the usual 3D method of emphasizing certain elements and relegating others was employed but all of them are in relief instead. The opening scene with the firing gun is maybe the only license to that use. The result it is an exciting watching experience that brings the whole set to life by highlighting every single element. 3D experience upgraded.

As for the cast, Biff Elliot plays decently although wooden a tough, rude and violent Mike Hammer, boxer- type (he had been a boxer himself in his youth). Peggie Castle plays a psychoanalyst and does an excellent femme fatale, Preston Foster has a small but solid role as a police captain and Margaret Sheridan is the ever- efficient Hammer secretary (Perry Mason's Della Street type). Role of the dead man was played by real life single -handed Robert Swanger in his only screen appearance.

Based on Mickey Spillane's book I, the jury some facts were changed - cocaine traffic to jewelry smuggling, twin sisters' nymphomania and Hammer's final shot from spontaneous to in response to be almost killed.

Special mention for the 3D-inside-3D view-master type shot surprise gem. This scene only makes the movie worth watching in 3D only and an enjoyable experience for any 3D and view master fan. Do not miss it.
