"Turner has one of the best screen entrances in history; Garfield literally reels."
"Lana Turner's Cora is all fire and ice, while John Garfield's Frank takes a sweaty, convincing journey from besotted suitor to wary partner in crime."
Description by OLDIES.com:
Based on the same-titled novel by James M. Cain (Double Indemnity, Mildred Pierce), this quintessential film-noir classic combines studio-system gloss with Cain's hard-bitten tale of murderous attractions. John Garfield and Lana Turner give career-benchmark performances as Frank and Cora, illicit lovers who botch a first attempt to bump off Cora's hubby, pull it off, betray each other at trial and yet wriggle free. But their volatile tale does not end there. As the film's metaphorical title indicates, fate is sure to ring again.
- Before production, acotr John Garfield went into the army, so the film's director tested Cameron Mitchell for the lead. But Garfield was released from military service because of a heart condition, and, in the end, he took the role.
- Film debut for actor Cameron Grant.
- The erotic scenes in the film had to be toned down to comply with the standards of the Hays Office. Even this sanitized version was considered shocking by some at the time.
