Directed by Billy Wilder

You Can't Kiss Away A Murder!
It's Love And Murder At First Sight !

Walter Neff: "That was all there was to it. Nothing had slipped, nothing had been overlooked. There was nothing to give us away. And yet, Keyes, as I was walking down the street to the drugstore, suddenly, it came over me that everything would go wrong. It sounds crazy Keyes, but it's true, so help me, I couldn't hear my own footsteps. It was the walk of a dead man."

Such a well an excellent movie w/ a really great screen play by Billy Wilder & Raymond Chandler. The two of these men hated each other however and after watching a documentary about this film, I found it hard to believe that they even pulled it off! Ness & I tried watching the 70's made for TV version that pretty much uses the exact same screenplay and scene for scene and it was horrible! Barbara Stanwyck was so good at being evil in this movie and her blonde wig is so funny.
