RichardSchickel's book is an introduction to Billy Wilder's classic 1944 film, based on James Cain's novella, Double Indemnity.
Schickel explains the Wilder film's significant place in cinematic history, as model of a new cinematic form (film noir, as it came to be called) and signalling the emergence of Billy Wilder as a director.
Schickel does a good job of explaining the difficulties with then transforming the book into a screenplay, from the problems with Cain's dialogue (which looked good on the page but didn't sound right) to the story itself (especially Cain's somewhat convoluted ending).
