Selected by writer/actor Robert Daws and screening as part of Granite Noir — Aberdeen's crime fiction book festival.
“'How could I have known that murder can sometimes smell like honeysuckle?’ The great Billy Wilder directing and co-writing with Raymond Chandler, from the novel by James M Cain. The inspired casting of Stanwyck and MacMurray. Plus my personal favourite, the magnetic Edward G Robinson. A classic tale where the fool falls for the psychopath, it’s as fresh and as terrifying today as it was on first release. Film Noir at its best.” — Robert Daws
