THE NAKED KISS
1964, Ben Barry & Association, 93 min, USA, Dir: Samuel Fuller

A prostitute (Constance Towers) attempts to turn her life around but, after establishing herself as a nurse in a small town, she discovers that her fiancé has a terrible, shattering secret. Also starring Michael Dante and Anthony Eisley. Photographed by Stanley Cortez, this unique pulp melodrama is Samuel Fuller’s most potent examination of appearance and reality with respect to the “American dream.” "In NAKED KISS, I maintained that no matter how low someone is in the depths of their profession, there’s someone lower." - Fuller
