(1944, directed by Billy Wilder, 107 mins., NR)

Insurance agent Walter Neff (Fred MacMurray) and Phyllis Dietrichson (Barbara Stanwyck), a diabolical blonde bombshell, plot to “bump off” Phyllis’ husband and collect the premiums. This definitive film noir of the ‘40s shimmies with suspense, hard-bitten dialogue, shadowy rooms, sealed fates, and perfect plans gone awry.

Double Idemnity is screening as part of The National Bank of Indianapolis 2012 Summer Nights Film Series.
