It’s hitting DVD for the first time: Darren McGavin as Mickey Spillane’s Mike Hammer, the complete series out from A&E. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:
Created by legendary crime novelist Mickey Spillane, Mike Hammer was brought to television for the first time in 1958, with Darren McGavin (A Christmas Story, Murphy Brown) as the hardboiled private eye. Pummeled for its “excessive and gratuitous violence” (by 1950’s standards), the show was, nevertheless, instantly successful â€” thanks, in part, to Gavin’s tongue-in-cheek charm. Now available for the first time ever on DVD in MICKEY SPILLANE’S MIKE HAMMER: THE COMPLETE SERIES, fans can at long last enjoy all 78 episodes of this groundbreaking, eagerly sought-after series!
A must-have collectible for any crime/mystery/film noir fan, the never-before-released cult-classic features appearances from TV legends Angie Dickinson (“Police Woman”), Marion Ross (“Happy Days”), DeForest Kelly (“Star Trek”), Barbara Bain (“Space: 1999”), Ted Knight (“The Mary Tyler Moore Show”) and Lorne Greene (“Bonanza”) and is truly classic TV at its finest.
