Double Indemnity

Part of The Hollywood Classics behind Walkers
Saturday, December 19, 2015, 1:30 p.m.

Dir. Billy Wilder. 1944, 107 mins. 35mm. With Barbara Stanwyck, Fred MacMurray, Edward G. Robinson. One of the first essential noir films, Double Indemnity is an adaptation of James M. Cain's pulp classic with a Raymond Chandler–Billy Wilder screenplay, about a femme fatale who lures an insurance salesman into killing her husband. Despite the sizzling undercurrent in the repartee between Fred MacMurray and Barbara Stanwyck ("I wonder if I know what you mean." "I wonder if you wonder."), the real love story here is between MacMurray's insurance salesman and his boss, played by Edward G. Robinson.
