Double Indemnity

Dozens and dozens of film noir movies from the 1930s and '40s are now on DVD. Our critic at large has piles of them, but he says one stands out: the new digitally remastered Double Indemnity.

Powers says Billy Wilder's film, an account of infidelity and murder starring Barbara Stanwyck and Fred MacMurray, is the best example of the enduring power of film noir.
