continues the season of films from the writings of RAYMOND CHANDLER starring
Fred MacMurray
Barbara Stanwyck
Edward G. Robinson
This brilliantly atmospheric movie stars Fred MacMurray as an easy-going insurance salesman ensnared by the beautiful wife of one of his clients into committing the ' perfect' insurance fraud and-they hope - the perfect murder. This thriller represents Chandler's first direct work as a screenwriter in his adaptation of James M. Cain 's cynical novel about human corruptibility.
Based on the novel by JAMES M. CAIN Produced by JOSEPH SISTROM Directed by BILLY WILDER Films: page 23

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
