Double Indemnity (1944) - Directed by Billy Wilder

It’s just like the first time I came here, isn’t it? We were talking about automobile insurance, only you were thinking about murder. And I was thinking about that anklet.

Mae Madison and Edward G. Robinson - Smart Money (1931)
I watched this film last night, and highly recommend it. It’s one of the best pre-code films I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen many. James Cagney and Boris Karloff are also in it, and it has quite possibly the most vast array of beautiful blonde actresses in one film ever - it’s funny, gritty, has a shocking ending but also allows for some hope at the end, and is a delight. And the fashions are to die for!
The entire movie is up on youtube at the moment although I watched it on dvd - you can see it starting here:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-gLv0LPVrLg
