Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art says
Walter Neff (Fred MacMurray) is a tough-talking insurance salesman who falls in love with the unhappily married Phyllis Dietrichson (Barbara Stanwyck). Together they plot the perfect crime: the 'accidental' death of Phyllis's tycoon husband so they can cash in on his hefty life insurance. The only person standing in their way is Neff's boss Barton Keyes (Edward G Robinson), who smells a rat! Billy Wilder´s Double Indemnity is the quintessential film noir. The screenplay, inspired by the real life murderess Lorraine Snyder, was written by Wilder alongside detective writer Raymond Chandler and is equal parts hardboiled and tawdry. Told through a mosaic of flashback narratives, it takes place in a lonely Los Angeles, framed by sharp shadows and a mood of deep cynicism.
