Double Indemnity

Directed by: Billy Wilder

Starring: Barbara Stanwyck, Fred MacMurrey, Edward G. Robinson

“”Double Indemnity” has one of the most familiar noir themes: The hero is not a criminal, but a weak man who is tempted and succumbs. In this “double” story, the woman and man tempt one another; neither would have acted alone. Both are attracted not so much by the crime as by the thrill of committing it with the other person. Love and money are pretenses. The husband’s death turns out to be their one-night stand.”

Roger Ebert
