Not Rated | | Crime, Drama, Film-Noir
An insurance representative lets himself be talked into a murder/insurance fraud scheme that arouses an insurance investigator's suspicions.
The script was co-written by Raymond Chandler and Billy Wilder. Wilder didn't get on with the famous novelist, whose constant drinking irritated him. Wilder effectively exorcised his demons about dealing with alcoholics with his next film, The Lost Weekend (1945).
Well, hello there, Mr. Neff.
When Walter and Phyllis are kissing and talking on his couch, they show Phyllis with her left hand, palm up; next shot is a side angle where she suddenly has her left hand caressing Walter's cheek.
Opening credits are shown over a silhouette of a man on crutches, walking toward the camera.
