Is this story the making of "Killer's Kiss"?
7 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

I first viewed this movie over 15-years ago. I remember hearing then; that the story, about the making of a low budget movie, was based on Stanley Kubrick's effort to make the movie "Killer's Kiss" (1955). That movie starred Irene Kane and Jamie Smith; and was produced by both Stanley Kubrick and Morris Bousel. Watch both motion pictures and see what you think.
