I am a huge Ralph Meeker fan and feel he was highly underrated. Yes, Kiss Me Deadly was his best (I love that film), but I don't understand why he wasn't giving parts like Burt Lancaster, Robert Mitchum, and Robert Ryan (maybe he was offered the roles - I don't know). I feel he could have handled them. I will admit, there was a window in the fifties when Meeker was at his best - although the films were not that good. Shadow in the Sky is an example; it's a bit weak and tries too hard. But, it gives me a chance to see Meeker, and I always enjoy him.
