 Paramount Pictures in 1944, directed by Billy Wider, stars Barbara Stanwyck, Fred MacMurray, Edward G. Robinson, and Porter Hall. Insurance agent Walter Neff meets Phyllis Dietrichson, the seductive wife of one of his clients and they begin an affair. Phyllis proposes to kill her husband to receive the proceeds of his accident insurance policy and Walter devises a scheme to receive twice the amount based on a double indemnity clause. When Phyllis' husband is found dead on a train track, the police accept the determination of accidental death. However, the insurance company's analyst, Neff's best friend Barton Keyes, does not buy the story and suspects that Phyllis has murdered her husband with the help of another man.
