Program Locations:

Pelham Parkway-Van Nest Library

Join us for a classic movie every Wednesday morning.

This week's movie is: Double Indemnity (1944). Walter Neff (Fred MacMurray), an insurance agent, and Phyllis Dietrichson (Barbara Stanwyck), a greedy blonde bombshell, plot to bump off Phyllis’ husband and collect the premiums. Leaving behind the standard New York setting of lower-class crime, this definitive film-noir of the ‘40s takes place in a California of shady streets, supermarkets, and stucco houses.

Starring Fred MacMurray and Barbara Stanwyck. Universal Pictures. Black and White. Not rated. 107 minutes.
