My favorite “film-noir” must-see classic is “Double Indemnity.” The 1944 crime-drama stars Fred MacMurray, Barbara Stanwyck and Edward G. Robinson and was directed by Billy Wilder. The film was based on James M. Cain’s 1943 novel of the same name.

Double Indemnity was nominated for seven Academy Awards but won none! However, the film is often cited as a paradigmatic film-noir and as having set the standard for the films that followed in the film-noir genre. Deemed, “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant” by the U.S. Library of Congress in 1992, Double Indemnity was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry. In 1998, it was ranked #38 on the American Film Institute’s list of the 100 best American films of all time.
