Has dialogue ever been more perfectly hard-boiled? Has a femme fatale ever been as deliciously evil as Barbara Stanwyck (The Lady Eve)? And has 1940s Los Angeles ever looked so seductively sordid? Working with cowriter Raymond Chandler, director Billy Wilder (Ace in the Hole) launched himself onto the Hollywood A-list with this paragon of film-noir fatalism from James M. Cain's pulp novel.

When slick salesman Walter Neff (Fred Macmurray - The Caine Mutiny) walks into the swank home of dissatisfied housewife Phyllis Dietrichson (Stanwyck), he intends to sell her insurance, but he winds up becoming entangled with her in a far more sinister way.

Featuring scene-stealing supporting work from Edward G. Robinson and the chiaroscuro of cinematographer John F. Seitz (Sunset Blvd.), Double Indemnity is one of the most wickedly perverse stories ever told and the cynical standard by which all noir must be measured.

Double Indemnity is given the Criterion treatment and released on Blu-ray 30th May 2022 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
