Insurance salesman Walter Neff doesn’t stand a chance after he catches the glint of Phyllis Dietrichson’s ankle bracelet in
the chiaroscuro of her L.A. hacienda. She entangles him in a murderous policy payoff plot, their fates now linked “straight down the line.” “Noir’s defining movie” (Rough Guide to Film Noir). Universal Archive print.
