Double Indemnity: Special Edition
Directed by: Billy Wilder
(MCA Home Video)
The original Let’s Kill the Hubby and Fuck Off With the Insurance Money story, this 1944 noir features Fred MacMurray playing against type as the immoral insurance agent, on the hook with Barbara Stanwyck’s murderous wife, letting fly with classic zingers like “Do I laugh now, or wait ’til it gets funny?”
