Wow, he played a psychotic killer to the hilt in 'Kiss of Death. In fact this film was his movie debut.

Originally, Patricia Morrison played Victor Mature's wife, who is attacked and raped by a gangster who is supposed to be watching out for her while Mature is in prison, and afterwards she commits suicide by sticking her head in the kitchen oven and turning on the gas. Both scenes were cut from the original print at the insistence of the censors, who wanted no depiction of either a rape or a suicide, so although Morison's name appears in the credits, she does not appear in the film at all (although mention is made later in the film about Mature's wife's suicide).

I remember my father watching this whenever it came on TV. Thank goodness on demand didn't exist back then!

Mr. Widmark will certainly be missed!

Another role Richard Widmark was famous was the movie No Way Out which he played a racist. It was Sidney Poitier's first movie.
