Double Indemnity

Tuesday, June 5

Film History Suburbs & Beyond

Late at night, an insurance man (Fred MacMurray) arrives at his office with a bullet in his shoulder and a story to tell about a cold-blooded femme fatale (Barbara Stanwyck), their plot to murder her husband, and how it all went sideways. Often cited as the film noir, Double Indemnity brims with shadows, cynicism, and tragic destiny.
