Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

Archetypal film noir of the forties, brilliantly filmed and incisively written by Billy Wilder and Raymond Chandler, perfectly capturing the decayed Los Angeles atmosphere of a Chandler novel but using a simpler story and more substantial characters. The hero/villain was almost a new concept. Stars Fred MacMurray, Barbara Stanwyck and Edward G. Robinson. Based on a novel by James M. Cain.
