Kill Me Again location: Val Kilmer works out of Reno, ‘The Biggest Little City in the World’

John Dahl’s multiple-cross film noir, with debt-ridden PI Jack Andrews (Val Kilmer) helping femme fatale Fay Forrester (Joanne Whalley) fake her own death. Where else could it be set but the gambling state of Nevada?

The opening robbery is at Winnemucca, on I-80 in the north of the state. It’s in Reno (with the familiar ‘Biggest Little City in the World’ sign across its main street) that Jack Andrews has his office.

Fay fetches up at the ever-popular Las Vegas Hilton, 3000 Paradise Road (this is also where Robert Redford made that Indecent Proposal and also featured as Willard Whyte’s 'Whyte House' in Bond movie Diamonds Are Forever).

Jack and Fay set off for Lake Mead, where a second death is faked. Mead is the huge artificial lake created when the Colorado River was blocked up by the Hoover Dam.

The getaway ‘Echo Bay Motel’ is Lake Mead Lodge, 322 Lakeshore Road, Boulder City on Lake Mead’s northwest shore.
