In 1937 Nevada, silver mine caretaker Jess Tyler is reunited with his teenage daughter Kady who will do anything to persuade Jess to let her have claim to the mine.
One of two filmed adaptation of 'James M Cain' novels made and released around 1981/82, the other was The Postman Always Rings Twice (1981). Also released in 1981 was Body Heat (1981) which though not technically a remake of Double Indemnity (1944) (also from the novel by James M. Cain) did reference it considerably. The story and characters closely parallel the earlier film. Ned, Matty and Oscar are Walter, Phyllis and Keyes respectively.
