Coming to DVD: Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer: The Complete Series (1958)

Coming to DVD on Sept. 20 -- the 1958 series Mickey Spillanes Mike Hammer: The Complete Series, starring Darren McGavin.

New York City. 1958. In these concrete canyons, everybody s got an angle: The beauty with the sob story who killed her old man. The harmless geezer who s in bed with the mob. The kidnapped broad who s really a fraud. When a case gets too twisted for the cops, only one man can straighten it out: two-fisted gumshoe Mike Hammer.

Created by legendary crime novelist Mickey Spillane, Mike Hammer was brought to television for the first time in 1958, with Darren McGavin (Kolchak: The Night Stalker, A Christmas Story) as the hard-boiled private eye. The show was, instantly successful in part, to McGavin s tongue-in-cheek charm.

Here for the first time on DVD is the complete 78-episode run of the groundbreaking series MICKEY SPILLANE'S MIKE HAMMER, featuring the original jazz theme, Riff Blues and an unforgettable cast of con-men, crooks, killers and femmes fatale played by such notables as Angie Dickinson, Ted Knight, Barbara Bain, Marion Ross, Dick Van Patten and Robert Vaughn.
