Cold Sweat-er

A blonde in a tight fitting sweater
A femme fatale never looked better
This cold-blooded honey
loves only the money
Poor Walter was doomed when he met her

Barbara Stanwyck as Phyllis Dietrichson and Fred MacMurray as Walter Neff in Double Indemnity (Billy Wilder, 1944).

For the Love of Film (Noir) week might be over, but the smell of cordite still hangs in the air. We're stuck in a noir state of mind, so stick with us as we riff on noir classics Double Indemnity, The Lady From Shanghai and Out of the Past. And you can still help in the preservation of film noir--at any time-- by making a donation to the Film Noir Foundation. Just go to the foundation's donation page, here.

Update: As of 3/9/11, the For the Love of Film (Noir) donation page is still open for business! Before using the link above, please first try using the donation link in any of the posts from the previous week. Thanks!

Seeing those stills makes me want to see "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid" again.
