Double Indemnity

Double Indemnity ★★★★

"I wonder if you wonder..."

77 years later & Billy Wilder's first classic movie still holds up as the ultimate film noir. Packed full of some of the most quotable dialogue ever written in a script, & makes insurance misdemeanours as interesting as they can be. Wilder considered Double Indemnity to be his best film in terms of having the fewest scripting and shooting errors, and always maintained that the two things he was proudest of in his career were the compliments he received from James M. Cain (the novelist who wrote Double Indemnity) about Double Indemnity and from Agatha Christie  (who wrote Wilder’s Witness for the Prosecution).
