Fred MacMurray is rotten, but Barbara Stanwyck is a little more rotten in Billy Wilder’s masterpiece of double entendres and crosses, the nasty number that all but kick-started that thing called noir in America. Double Indemnity features a script cowritten by Wilder and Raymond Chandler from a novel by James M. Cain and more hard-boiled back-and-forth banter than you can shake a stick at, baby.
