The Girl Hunters, Mike Hammer Badge

original production material

Mickey Spillane's 'Mike Hammer' badge and case. Spillane was one of the most read and sold authors in history with sales of 225 million books, mostly about hard boiled detective Mike Hammer. Several of the books were made into films such as I, THE JURY, KISS ME DEADLY and THE GIRL HUNTERS. In a rare occurrence, Mickey himself starred in that film as his own creation, co starring Bond girl Shirley Eaton (GOLDFINGER). Filmed in London, Mickey drives his own classic Jaguar, a gift from John Wayne a few years earlier, that Mickey cherished his entire life. Mickey kept the badge, with his real life concealed weapons permit, on a bench in his hallway with the gun from the film and his hat. His trademark trenchcoat was hung on the wall with several images of him in costume. He often posed with guests in front of the images. Later, in life, he was one of the TV spokesmen for Miller Lite Beer in a series of humorous commercials. All pieces from his estate.
