366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 272


The Date: June 28
The Movie: Double Indemnity (1944)
What Is It?: Your noir education resides in Nowheresville until you see what may be the genre’s quintessential film. You’ve got your femme fatale, your dupe duped into committing a heinous crime for her, the cuckold, the steaminess, violence, and B&W shadow play. Billy Wilder brings his masterful style, Barbara Stanwyck electrifies, and Fred MacMurray once again raises a confounding question: how did this dude get cast as the dad from “My Three Sons”?
Why Today?: Today is Insurance Awareness Day.
