Double Indemnity 2.0 stars

Double Indemnity movie poster

Trash with pedigree: a novel by Cain, a script co-authored by Chandler, and fine work from Stanwyck and MacMurray, the latter of whom can always make sin look so unpleasurable. But this is not one of Billy Wilder's more personal projects, shallow and sleazy, and only conformistly cynical instead of (as in his better work) individually cynical. With Edward G. Robinson. 1944.
