Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye was made into a movie, in 1950, directed by Gordon
Douglas, starring James Cagney as criminal protagonist. Leonard Maltin
gives it **1/2 out of 4. It was made into video and laser. I have not
seen the movie, but I found the novel interesting -- one bad guy against
bad guys. I want to see the movie version because of James Cagney.
