Certificate PG

In an imaginative variation on the Double Indemnity theme, the eponymous femme fatale (Stanwyck, dependably great) works her magic on an assistant DA (Corey) and a cop (Kelly) who are investigating her aunt’s death during a robbery. Jordon’s guile toys with the DA’s feckless emotions like a cat with a mouse; Siodmak’s typically meticulous direction delineates the power-play with precision and subtlety.
