Stacy Keach Mickey Spillane - Mike Hammer

Stacy Keach played the detective Mike Hammer - created by writer Mickey Spillane - in a TV series from 1984 to 1987. This was not the super-sex filled, rough cut man of the original series. Instead, the TV series turned it more into a drama-comedy, with a lot of humor and snappy dialogue.

The series starts out with Velma being very "kitten-sexy" but she tones down as it progresses. Mike comes off as more obnoxious than in the movies, more of a "I am right, hah hah" sort of person.
