My Gun Is Quick is a 1957 film noir crime film based on the 1950 novel My Gun Is Quick by Mickey Spillane.[1] Written by Richard M. Powell and directed by Mike Hammer producer Victor Saville credited as Phil Victor[2] and George White, the movie stars Robert Bray as private investigator Mike Hammer, Whitney Blake and Pamela Duncan as Velda, Hammer's secretary.[3]

Plot

Private investigator Mike Hammer, by assisting a prostitute being assaulted, cannot help noticing a unique ring on her finger. Later, when she is found murdered that ring is nowhere to be found. From here the story moves to a cache of jewelry stolen by the Nazis during World War II and smuggled out of France after the war by an American army colonel, who, together with Mike Hammer, tries to find the ring and recover all the other jewels. However, many parties are on the lookout and the private eye runs into big trouble.

Cast

Critical reception

TV Guide noted "The third of UA's Mike Hammer films in the 1950s...the usual number of fisticuffs, killings, and love scenes are presented. This is a lesser work in the series. Though well-crafted, the story is shallow and not really worth the efforts given here. The violence is often senseless and the sex seems to exist only for its own sake. Well produced, but still a boring and tasteless piece";[4] In a synopsis of the film for Allmovie, Hal Erickson wrote, "Not quite as accomplished as Robert Aldrich's classic Mike Hammer yarn Kiss Me Deadly, My Gun Is Quick works well within its modest limits."[5]
