The clip Meeting Mrs Dietrichson from Double Indemnity (1944)
Is Mr. Dietrichson in?
Who wants to see him?
My name is Neff. Walter Neff.
If you're selling something...
Look, it's Mr. Dietrichson I want to talk to...
...and it's not magazine subscriptions.
Listen, Mr. Dietrichson is not in.
How soon do you expect him?
He'll be home when he gets here, if that's any help to you.
What is it, Nettie? Who is it?
It's for Mr. Dietrichson.
I'm Mrs. Dietrichson. What is it?
How do you do, Mrs. Dietrichson?
I'm Walter Neff, Pacific All Risk.
Pacific all what?
The Pacific All Risk Insurance Company.
It's about some renewals on the automobiles.
I've been trying to contact your husband for the past two weeks...
...but he's never in his office.
Is there anything I can do?
The insurance ran out on the 15th.
I'd hate to think of your having a smashed fender...
...or something while you're not...
Perhaps I know what you mean, Mr. Neff.
I've just been taking a sunbath.
No pigeons around, I hope.
About those policies, Mrs. Dietrichson, I hate to take up your time, but...
Oh, that's all right.
If you'll wait till I put something on, I'll be right down.
Nettie, show Mr. Neff into the living room.
Where would the living room be?
In there, but they keep the liquor locked up.
It's all right. I always carry my own keys.
The living room was still stuffy...
...from last night's cigars.
The windows were closed...
...and the sunshine coming in through the venetian blinds...
...showed up the dust in the air.
On the piano, in a couple of fancy frames, were Mr. Dietrichson and Lola...
...his daughter by his first wife.
They had a bowl of those little red goldfish...
...on the table behind the big davenport.
But to tell you the truth, Keyes...
I wasn't a whole lot interested in goldfish right then.
Or in auto renewals, or in Mr. Dietrichson and his daughter Lola.
I was thinking about that dame upstairs, and the way she had looked at me...
...and I wanted to see her again, close...
...without that silly staircase between us.
The clip Meeting Mrs Dietrichson Part 2 from Double Indemnity (1944) with Fred MacMurray
I wasn't long, was I?
Not at all, Mrs. Dietrichson.
Hope I've got my face on straight.
It's perfect, for my money.
Neff is the name, isn't it?
With two 'F's,' like in Philadelphia, if you know the story.
What story? The Philadelphia Story.
Suppose we sit down and you tell me about the insurance.
My husband never tells me anything.
Well, it's on your two cars, the LaSalle and the Plymouth.
We've been handling this insurance for Mr. Dietrichson for three years...
...and we'd hate to see the policies lapse.
That's a honey of an anklet you're wearing, Mrs. Dietrichson.
As I was saying, we'd hate to see the policies lapse.
Of course, we give them 30 days. That's all we're allowed to give.
I guess he's been too busy down at Long Beach in the oil fields.
Couldn't I catch him at home some evening for a few minutes?
I suppose so. But he's never home much before 8:00.
That's fine with me.
You're not connected with the Automobile Club, are you?
No, the All Risk, Mrs. Dietrichson. Why?
Somebody from the Automobile Club has been trying to get him.
Do they have a better rate? If your husband's a member.
No, he isn't.
Well, then he'd have to join the club and pay the membership fee to start with.
I never knock the other fellow's merchandise, Mrs. Dietrichson.
The Automobile Club's fine. I can do just as well for you, though.
I have a very attractive policy here.
It wouldn't take me two minutes to put it in front of your husband.
For instance, we're writing a new kind of 50% retention feature...
...in the collision coverage.
