Some like It Cold: Fetishism in Billy Wilder's "Double Indemnity", 18-43
Hugh S. Manon
Abstract: This essay employs psychoanalytic theory to identify a fetishistic imperative in the perfect crime that Walter Neff endeavors to commit in Billy Wilder's "Double Indemnity." By favoring ongoing manipulation over goal attainment and satisfaction, Walter Neff engages in a virtuoso cover-up that represents a paradigmatic noir deception, inviting viewers to fantasize that there may always be "more than meets the eye."
