An insurance agent starts an affair with the wife of one of his clients who persuades him to murder her husband. Just when they think they’ve pulled it off the agent’s boss gets suspicious. This classic film noir approaches perfection with its gripping story-telling, crackling dialogue and total absence of sentimentality.
