    Description

    Double Indemnity (Paramount, 1944). Insert (14" X 36").
    Billy Wilder created what has become a classic film noir with this, his third U.S. film as director. Fred MacMurray stars as an insurance agent who becomes involved with the wife of a client, played to perfection by femme fatale Barbara Stanwyck. Her seductive ways convince him to help murder Stanwyck's husband and make it look like an accident, allowing her to collect on the double indemnity clause from his life insurance. Things run afoul, however, when MacMurray's boss (Edward G. Robinson) is tasked with investigating the case. This fantastic insert (considered by many to be the best format for the title) would make a fine addition to any noir collection. It shows fold wear with a couple of separations, small corner bumps, and a few soft surface scuffs. There is a small tear off of the the fold in the "Y" of "MacMurray." Folded, Fine/Very Fine.


    Estimate: $2,500 - $5,000.
