poster Double Indemnity
Insurance salesman Walter Neff is captivated by Phyllis Dietrichson, who wants to take out life insurance without her husband knowing. Neff immediately suspects she wants to kill the latter. He is so entranced that he becomes increasingly involved in her plot. Billy Wilder conveys Neff's paranoia like no other. The sparkling verbal fireworks are delightful.
