Brunch and a Movie

Billy Wilder's 1944 classic Double Indemnity set the bar for all film noir that followed. Insurance saleman Walter Neff (Fred MacMurray) has an affair with his client's seductive wife Phyllis Dietrichson (Barbara Stanwyck). Naturally, Phyllis suggests they murder her bastard of a husband. Totally on board with this idea, Walter proposes they make it look like an accident to take advantage of the "double indemnity" clause in hubby's life insurance. A perfect plan. What could go wrong? The story unfolds with immense suspense only made better with screenwriter Raymond Chandler's intense dialog. Wilder's keen directing, which focuses largely on the consequences of the characters' actions, makes this film unforgettable. The film shows this morning at 10 at the Capitol Theatre. Tickets are $5. Afterward, hit up one of the nearby restaurants for specials on food. Consult the Cleveland Cinemas website for details. (Stoops)
