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.

“Successfully adapting and opening up his own play, writer Bill Robens crafts an entertaining, affectionate film noir spoof, appropriately and atmospherically lensed in shadowy black and white by director of photography Nicholas Trikonis and crammed with genre archetypes (even the Maltese Falcon contributes a cameo), hard-boiled motor-mouthed narration supplied by private dick hero Charlie Nickels (Lemont) and relentless banter that frequently flies creatively out of control, providing the pic with one of its funniest running riffs..”
