" John Garfield plays Frank Chambers, a restless drifter who comes across a roadside restaurant/gas station and is hired by some nice old dude named Nick Smith. But it just so turns out the old man has a young blonde bombshell of a wife. That saucy femme fatale is Cora, played by the sultry Lana Turner, and she hits it off with Frank very very well.

They get involved and that lady's husband needs to be taken care of for that and other purposes. Even though I have only watched like an handful of film-noirs only, I can say that is one typical plot for such thing. A lot like in other one of the same area, Double Indemnity. Well, that's about as much as I "
