The story of DOUBLE INDEMNITY is told by the dying Walter Neff, beginning with his first meeting with the seductive Phyllis Dietrichson during a routine renewal of her husband's car insurance. After some flirtation she arranges a meeting without her husband, where she asks about an accident policy to be bought without her husband's knowledge. Although repulsed by the implications of her suggestions, his obsession with Phyllis leads Neff to contemplate the possibility of finding a way to kill her husband while making his death look like an accident. After she comes to his apartment, the insurance salesman finally agrees to become involved in the murder, and the two of them begin methodically working out the details.

A very good film from the director of 'Some Like it Hot'
Cracking script with MacMurray delivering it perfectly. As he says "I did it for money and a woman. Only I didn't get the money and I didn't get the woman". Edward G. is great support as well. I like these forties thrillers with narration and this is also done by MacMurray.
