DOUBLE INDEMNITY
1944, Universal, 107 min, Dir: Billy Wilder

Billy Wilder’s cunning masterpiece helped to spawn Hollywood’s dark era of mordant murder thrillers and is one of the greatest noirs ever made. Fred MacMurray plays Walter Neff, the sardonic insurance salesman who is willingly seduced by slinky Phyllis Dietrichson (Barbara Stanwyck) into planning and executing the murder of her newly insured husband. Edward G. Robinson is Keyes, Neff’s sharp colleague and gruff friend, who smells a rat when Phyllis’ hubby has a fatal train "accident," qualifying the femme fatale for the lucrative double-indemnity payout.

BALL OF FIRE
1941, Park Circus/Goldwyn, 111 min, USA, Dir: Howard Hawks

Barbara Stanwyck is sassy, saucy Sugarpuss O’Shea, a wisecracking nightclub singer on the run from mob kingpins. Gary Cooper is good egg Professor Bertram Potts, a naive scholar who meets the crooner while researching slang. Two worlds collide as Sugarpuss hides out with Potts and his nerdy crew of lexicographers in Howard Hawks’ wonderfully hilarious romantic comedy, which garnered four Oscar nominations, including Stanwyck for Best Actress and Billy Wilder and Thomas Monroe for Best Original Screenplay.
