DOUBLE INDEMNITY

Double Feature with THE BLUE DAHLIA (2:45, 7:00)

(1944) dir Billy Wilder w/Barbara Stanwyck, Fred MacMurray, Edward G. Robinson [107 min; DCP]
One of the quintessential film noirs finds Barbara Stanwyck seducing hapless insurance agent Fred MacMurray and manipulating him into murdering her husband.

“The film is a brilliant collision of evil and the mundane, and one of the reasons viewers respond to it so well is that it makes the mundane seem a little sexier in the resulting debris.” – Douglas Pratt, Hollywood Reporter

“The gold standard of ’40s noir, straight down the line.” – Jessica Winter, Time Out

“This expert night of the Hollywood soul is such a genre axiom it practically scans like a mid-’40s shopper’s catalogue for noiristes …” – Michael Atkinson, Village Voice
