One of the classic lines from DOUBLE INDEMNITY:
Edward G. Robinson as Barton Keyes to Fred MacMurray ( Walter Neff):
“I picked you for the job, not because I think you’re so darn smart, but because I thought you were a shade less dumb than the rest of the outfit.
Guess I was wrong. You’re not smarter, Walter, you’re just a little taller.”
You can hear Edward G. Robinson’s resigned tone.Neff has been like a son to him, he mentored Neff, he expected him to go far in the insurance business. Instead he finds that Neff is a killer.
And the blonde who set the drama in motion.
