An insurance representative lets himself be talked into a murder/insurance fraud scheme that arouses an insurance investigator's suspicions.
According to an April 1975 career article on Brian Donlevy in "Films in Review," the actor turned down the lead role because it was "too shady."
Well, hello there, Mr. Neff.
The door to Neff's apartment opens away from, rather than toward, the apartment. This was a violation of the Los Angeles Fire Code. (Billy Wilder knew this, but could not change the door because of the crucial scene where Phyllis is hiding behind the door in the hallway.)
Opening credits are shown over a silhouette of a man on crutches, walking toward the camera.
