John Wheatley in Kiss of Death

Kiss of Death

1977 NR

Indie film legend Mike Leigh helmed this whimsical, made-for-television tale about Trevor (David Threlfall), an unusually bashful mortician's assistant -- and a social throwback whose pathetic yet deadly earnest attempts at romance will have you laughing out loud. A perfect showcase for Leigh's offbeat and bleakly humorous worldview, Kiss of Death costars John Wheatley as Trevor's best friend, Ronnie.
