Two superb performances, one fine filmThe guy we think of as friendly, not-too-bright Fred MacMurray becomes a villain Bogart would strain to equal as a cocky, amoral insurance salesman who gets in over his head with calculating femme fatale Barbara Stanwyck, and finds everything coming apart as he tries to untangle himself from a murder. Stanwyck is sometimes brilliant; Edward G. Robinson, as MacMurray's suspicious colleague, is unforgettable throughout.

Ultimate Suspense ClassicFred MacMurray & Barbara Stanwyke seems like weird casting but once you see this film you can't picture anyone else in the lead roles. (with Edward G. Robinson in a wonderful supporting role)This film truly deserves to be called a "classic" and has remained so for decades. I can't rate it higher or fault it.

Det er historien om forsikringssælgeren Walter Neff (Fred MacMurray), som tryllebindes af mødet med en blond femme fatale, Phyllis Dietrichson (Barbara Stanwyck). Sammen planlægger de at skaffe hendes mand af vejen. Mordet planlægges og udføres omhyggeligt Walters overordnede (Edward G. Robinson) er sikker på, at noget ikke er, som det skal være; den afdøde har netop tegnet en livsforsikring med en såkaldt "double indemnity" klausul - og sandsynligheden for så efterfølgende at dø i et ulykkestilfælde, der dækkes af policen - er uendelig lille. Han mistænker ikke umiddelbart sin trofaste medarbejder, men da undersøgelserne i ubehagelig grad nærmer sig sandheden, erfarer Walter, at han måske slet ikke står foran en ny tilværelse med en smuk, ung kvinde - men at hun i virkeligheden har helt andre planer.

Sunset Boulevard (1950)Classics1950

Gloria Swanson, as Norma Desmond, an aging silent-film queen, and William Holden, as the struggling young screenwriter who is held in thrall by her madness, created two of the screen's most memorable characters in "Sunset Boulevard." Winner of three Academy Awards®, director Billy Wilder's powerful orchestration of the bizarre tale is a true cinematic classic. From the unforgettable opening sequence -- a body found floating in a decayed mansion's swimming pool -- through the inevitable unfolding of tragic destiny, "Sunset Boulevard" is the definitive statement on the dark and desperate side of Hollywood. Erich von Stroheim as Desmond's discoverer, ex-husband and butler, and Nancy Olson as the bright spot amidst unrelenting ominousness, are equally celebrated for their masterful performances.
