Double Indemnity
director:
Billy Wilder
cast:
Barbara Stanwyck, Fred MacMurray, Edward G. Robinson

Wilder’s Double Indemnity defined the noir genre with its calculated coolness and eerily familiar scenes of suburban LA. Barbara Stanwyck plays the ultimate femme fatale: a woman who lures a hapless insurance salesman (MacMurray in a handsome suit) into a complex murder scheme. The electricity between the killer couple is palpable and Edward G. Robinson (as MacMurray’s emasculated boss) crackles each time he steps into the frame.
