Double Indemnity


"Double Indemnity" is a 1944 American crime film noir directed by Billy Wilder, co-written by Billy Wilder and Raymond Chandler and produced by Buddy De Silva and Joseph Sistrom. 

The film stars Fred MacMurray as an insurance salesman, Barbara Stanwick as a provocative housewife who is accused of killing her husband, and Edward G. Robinson as a claims adjuster whose job is to find phony claims. The term "double indemnity" refers to a clause in certain life insurance policies that doubles the payout in cases when the death is accidental.
