Certificate PG

Adapted by Wilder and Raymond Chandler from James M Cain’s novel, this finds an insurance salesman (MacMurray) entranced by a married woman (Stanwyck) who persuades him to join her in a murderous scam. The toxicity of the couple’s respective emotions only becomes fully evident as their plans progress. With Miklós Rósza’s doom-laden score and John Seitz’s camerawork, it’s as dark as noir gets.
