Phyllis Dietrichson (Barbara Stanwyck) seduces insurance agent Walter Neff (Fred MacMurray) into murdering her husband to collect his accident policy. The murder goes as planned, but after the couple's passion cools, each becomes suspicious of the other's motives. Directed by the renowned Billy Wilder with heightened hard-edged cinematography and unsentimental perspective, this classic drama is the high water mark of 1940s film noir.
