Set in 1940s LA, Billy Wilder’s cynical and witty thriller about adultery, greed and corruption is a pinnacle of the film noir genre. A lusty insurance salesman (Fred MacMurray) enters a maze of duplicity with a wicked femme fatale (Barbara Stanwyck) and their elaborate insurance fraud—a perfect crime threatened with failure by their mutual mistrust. From Raymond Chandler’s stinging dialogue to stunning cinematography, this masterwork has been often imitated but never equaled. Introduction by DFS Directorate Member Dennis Damon Moore. D: Billy Wilder, US, 1944, 107m
