Double Indemnity Blu-Ray

Double Indemnity Blu-Ray
Double Indemnity is the dazzling, quintessential film noir whose enormous popular success and seven Oscar nominations catapulted Billy Wilder (Some Like It Hot, Sunset Boulevard, The Apartment) into the very top tier of Hollywood's writer-directors. Adapted from a novella by James M. Cain (The Postman Always Rings Twice), co-written by Wilder and Raymond Chandler (The Big Sleep, The Long Goodbye), Double Indemnity remains the hardest-boiled of delectations. The Masters Of Cinema Series is proud to present Billy Wilder's landmark film for the first time anywhere in the world on Blu-Ray.
