Happy Friday! Here is Edward G. Robinson’s second-best scene in Double Indemnity (the best one is the end, when he grimly and lovingly acknowledges Fred MacMurray’s guilt). Who but Edward G. Robinson could deliver a line like “Come now, you’ve never read an actuarial table in your life, have you?” and still sound like a force to be reckoned with?
“Now you’re an honest man again.” Have a great afternoon and turn the lights out when you’re done.
