This is part of the “Femme Fatale” film series that goes with Tracey Snelling’s “Woman on the Run” exhibit at the Frist (which is REALLY cool). As for the film it’s about Walter Neff, an insurance agent, and Phyllis Dietrichson, a greedy blonde bombshell, who plot to bump off Phyllis’ husband and collect the premiums. Leaving behind the standard New York setting of lower-class crime, this definitive film-noir of the 1940s takes place in a California of shady streets, supermarkets, and stucco houses. Stars Fred MacMurray and Barbara Stanwyck. Directed by Billy Wilder, 1944.
The whole thing gets started at 7pm and is not rated. Oh, and save room for some of their free popcorn!
