I had been waiting to watch this film for a very long time thanks to the reputation I'd read about it being one of the greatest 'noir' films of all time. I must say I wasn't disappointed after finally settling down to see it in all of it's 100 minutes of black and white glory.

The story begins with a suspicious figure driving erratically through the streets in the early hours. It tu... read more

"You want to know who killed Dietrichson? Hold tight to that cheap cigar of yours, Keyes.
I killed Dietrichson - me, Walter Neff, insurance salesman, 35 years old, unmarried, no visible scars...until a while ago, that is.
Yes, I killed him. I killed him for money and for a woman.
I didn't get the money and I didn't get the woman. Pretty, isn't it?"

If there is a keyword I would to describe Double Indemnity, its dialogue. Exposition is a very tricky line to cross; when done poorly is can come off as immensely frustrating but when done right it can be music to the ears, leaving me dying to hear more like I’m watching an engrossing documentary. Throughout Double Indemnity with the use of narration, Fred MacMurray will explain what’s clearly... read more

The couple are immediately drawn to each other and an affair begins. They cook up a scheme to murder Mr. Dietrichson for life insurance money with a double indemnity clause.

"Billy Wilder's Film Noir classic 'Double Indemnity' is now seen as a paradigm of the genre but the excessive darkness of the material nearly prevented it from being made at all. James M. Cain's source text about an insurance salesman drawn into a murderous plot by a ruthless femme fatale originally appeared as an eight part serial in Liberty magazine in 1936 but a bidding war between the major studios for the rights to the story was swiftly halted by a letter from the Hays office stating "The ge"

"First Watched 1/31/2018 Often times in the genres of film history there emerge names that become front lines for each of their respective genres for example: Goodfellas for the gangster genre, Once Upon a Time in the West for the Western genre, Die Hard for the Action genre, When Harry met Sally for the romantic genre, etc. Double Indemnity is what people should think of when thinking of the best of the noir genre. Right alongside The Killers from 1946 and Sunset Blvd. from 1950. Because thi"

"Re-watch - March 5th Today is the first annual Reel Film Day (on 3/5 as in 35mm), and the theatre within walking distance of my home provided an irresistible option to participate in it...the excellent Double Indemnity in 35mm with the option of adding a chili dinner and 2 tickets for beer to consume during the screening. The food & beer were good, the print was great given its age, and of course the film was every bit as good as the last time I saw it."
