It’s 1947, hard-boiled private dick Charlie Nickels’ client is murdered and her priceless diamond stolen. The investigation forces Charlie to do the one thing he vowed he would never do again: trust a dame. Kill Me, Deadly has the look and feel of the classic noirs of the 1940’s, a classic love story with deceit, murder, double and triple crosses all wrapped in… comedy. That’s right, comedy.
