Trivia

Billy Wilder (the co-writer and director of the original version, Double Indemnity (1944)) and Barbara Stanwyck (who played Phyllis in the original version) both saw the film in their respective homes when it broadcast. When it was over, Wilder immediately phoned Stanwyck, said, "Missy, they just didn't get it right," and hung up. See more »

TV Remake.
6 November 2013 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Jack Smight directed this TV remake of the original 1944 film, based on James M. Cain's novel, that stars Richard Crenna as Walter Naff, an insurance salesman seduced by a client's wife named Phyllis Dietrichson(played by Samantha Eggar) to murder her husband for the insurance money, with the double indemnity clause giving them twice the payout, though Walter's boss Barton Keyes(played by Lee J. Cobb) is suspicious of Phyllis, convinced she murdered her husband with the help of another man, not knowing that it's Walter... Needless and ineffectual remake still has a good cast and story, but no atmosphere or point at all.
