Double Indemnity is one of my all time favorite movies This has the same elements greed lust murder In fact this one would probably make a cracker jack film too On the page though something doesn t

adulterous husband But Sally has her eyes on the prize when her father in law dies her magician husband will inherit millions Clay thinks Sally means to bring about this inheritence without waiting

And this is one of the weird ish elements of the story Clay propositions Grace too Trying to bag a daughter and her mom is just unsavory Clay thinks he has Sally convinced to divorce her husband However that very night her father in law dies it looks like he choked on a peanut but Clay is pretty sure that Sally smothered him Her husband is pretty sure too He persuades the police to investigate but nothing can be proved Sally s vengeful nature has been aroused however As far as she s concerned her husband deserves to die for trying to rat her out to the cops She and Clay plot to kill Alec in a not so accidental car accident Sally stays home and invites her mother and two other women over to serve as an alibi Clay contrives a circumstantial alibi for himself conspicuously

Alec s magic assistant and lover was also in the car Clay is first hit by guilt thinking he has killed the girl and then he s hit with panic when he reads in the paper that Buster not only isn t dead she believes she saw the license number of the car that hit her Clay and Sally are finished she doesn t intend to go down for murder and makes it clear that she ll throw Clay under the bus if it comes to that Clay realizes that it s Grace he loves and he uickly marries his lover s mom He tells Grace everything and she agrees to stand by him Clay keeps expecting the police at his door but it turns out that the license number Buster thinks she saw was Sally s But Sally s alibi holds up and now nothing will satisfy her except seeing Buster convicted Once the police discover that Alec had taken out a life insurance policy to benefit Buster they come around to Sally s way of thinking Clay and Grace do everything they can to keep Buster from being convicted First they pay for her lawyer and then Clay agrees to testify after all he was waiting near the parking lot of the club where Alec and Buster did their magic act and he overheard the final fight they had before the crash He knows that she didn t as one witness claimed threaten to kill Alec But the police have already checked out his alibi and are persuaded that he was at home not at the club Buster is convicted of manslaughter Clay decides he must confess He types his confession and drops it in the mail One final copy he takes with him to Sally s home First he tells her that he s turning himself in then he strangles her and then he jumps to his death from the roof of the building Not bad except for the love triangle I couldn t figure out why he wanted to be with Sally in the first place and once I had decided to just go with
