Director: BILLY WILDER

U.S.A. • 1944 • BLACK AND WHITE • 35MM • 107 MIN


Wild Strawberries is our film club for older people. During the present refurbishment of the IFI, we regret that we’re unable to run our bi-monthly screenings. However, we will schedule one Sunday screening per month and also offer €5 tickets for Wild Strawberries members to all films within the Raymond Chandler Season. Bookings for the Sunday screening can be made from September 1st through the box office on 01 679 3477. Tickets for the Wild Strawberry screening costs e4 which includes a regular tea/coffee.
This month’s choice, Double Indemnity, comes directly from the IFI Raymond Chandler season. Fans of film noir, femmes fatales, detective stories, Chandler’s writing or Billy Wilder’s direction won’t be disappointed with this hardboiled thriller. Fizzing with one-liners, it’s the story of demonic platinum blonde Phyllis Dietrichson (Barbara Stanwyck) and insurance salesman Walter Neff (Fred McMurray), who plot to murder her husband and make off with the insurance money. But they don’t bank on Barton Keyes, the cigar-chomping bulldog insurance investigator played by Edward G. Robinson in this unmissable classic.
