One of the most influential films of all time. Billy Wilder's iconic Film Noir stars Fred MacMurray as Walter Neff, a smooth-talking insurance salesman. When he calls to renew the Dietrichson family insurance, he falls for the beautiful wife Phyllis. Together, the two cook up a scheme to murder her husband for life insurance money - which pays double in the event of unexpected death. But Neff's office smells a scam, and sets about investigating.

Considered the greatest film noir ever made, and nominated for seven Academy Awards, Double Indemnity is legendary director Billy Wilder's masterful adaptation of James M. Cain's classic thriller. With a brilliant cast - Fred MacMurray, Barbara Stanwyck, Edward G. Robinson - it is a cynical, witty thriller about adultery, corruption and murder.
