KAFM Classic Film Series May 7th- Double Indemnity

“Stanwyck’s Phyllis Dietrichson, a platinum blonde who wears tight white sweaters, an anklet, and sleazy-kinky shoes, is perhaps the best acted and the most fixating of all the slutty, cold-blooded femmes fatales of the film noir genre. With her bold stare, her sneering, over-lipsticked, thick-looking mouth, and her strategically displayed legs, she’s a living entrapment device.” 
– Pauline Kael

Director Billy Wilder's classic Film Noir about lust, greed and Murder starring Fred MacMurray, Barbara Stanwyck and Edward G Robinson ratchets up the intensity, based on a James M. Cain novel and skillfully scripted by Wilder and Novelist Raymond Chandler.   This film is the Gold Standard of Film Noir and has inspired countless films after.  Come delve into the seedy side of humanity with KAFM. Tickets are $5 and show starts at 7pm. Doors Open at 6:30p.
