Did You Know?
One of two filmed adaptation of 'James M Cain' novels made and released around 1981/82, the other was The Postman Always Rings Twice
(1981). Also released in 1981 was Body Heat
(1981) which though not technically a remake of Double Indemnity
(1944) (also from the novel by James M. Cain
) did reference it considerably. The story and characters closely parallel the earlier film. Ned, Matty and Oscar are Walter, Phyllis and Keyes respectively. See more
That feels so good, Jess. Good, good hands... What's wrong?
It ain't right.
Feels good to me. Does it to you?
It just ain't right.
It's right if it's good.
You're my daughter, Kady.
I'm a woman, too.
