Please join us for DOUBLE INDEMNITY, the first film in season 4 of Lincoln Theater’s Classic Film Club celebrating the films of Billy Wilder, one of the most brilliant and versatile filmmakers of the Hollywood Golden Age of cinema. We are pleased to be joined at each screening by special guest, Jeannie MacDonald, for a pre-film talk and introduction. In this classic film noir, insurance salesman Walter Neff (Fred MacMurray) gets roped into a murderous scheme when he falls for the sensual Phyllis Dietrichson (Barbara Stanwyck), who is intent on killing her husband (Tom Powers) and living off the fraudulent accidental death claim. Prompted by the late Mr. Dietrichson’s daughter, Lola (Jean Heather), insurance investigator Barton Keyes (Edward G. Robinson) looks into the case, and gradually begins to uncover the sinister truth.
