Double Indemnity (Billy Wilder, 1944) will be screened on Thursday 19th November 2009 in the Studio Theatre. The film is a PG certificate.
Billy Wilder's classic noir, a familiar brew of lust, larceny and lethal injections, stars Fred MacMurray and Barbara Stanwyck as a hot blooded couple. Framed in flashback, the story is told by dying insurance salesman Walter Neff (MacMurray), beginning with his first meeting with the seductive Phyllis Dietrichson (Stanwyck) and a plot to kill her husband while making his death look like an accident. A brilliant noir, among the best of the genre, with a byzantine yet utterly plausible plot, stylized hard-boiled dialogue by Wilder and Raymond Chandler, and terrific performances by Stanwyck and Macmurray.
