RARA-AVIS: Spillane mentioned in movie Marty

I watched MARTY (1955) tonight, and towards the end there's a scene where Marty and three of his friends are hanging around his house wondering what to do. One of them is talking enthusiastically about Mickey Spillane: he retells the ending of I, THE JURY, then goes on about how many women make passes at Hammer in KISS ME, DEADLY. Another guy there says, "That Spillane. He sure could write" a few times. They're both big Spillane fans and they like Mike Hammer. This was just after Spillane's run of best-selling novels in the early '50s, and it was guys like them who made them so popular.
