Made for a miniscule $75,000 (mostly borrowed from a family friend), Killer's Kiss was 27-year-old Stanley Kubrick's first distributed film—an inventive and kinetic tribute to film noir and his hometown, Manhattan. The simple story—a boxer's affair with a mobster's woman puts them both in peril—is a springboard for the young director to show off remarkable skills as a director, cameraman, and editor. Using a largely amateur cast, shooting without sync sound, and limited to 100-foot rolls of film in his portable Eyemo camera, Kubrick made the first amateur feature to receive international distribution. The rest is history.
