Movie Scripts

FADE IN:

A-1 LOS ANGELES – A DOWNTOWN INTERSECTION It is night, about two o’clock, very light traffic. At the left and in the immediate foreground a semaphore traffic signal stands at GO. Approaching it at about thirty miles per hour is a Dodge 1938 coupe. It is driven erratically and weaving a little, but not out of control. When the car is about forty feet away, the signal changes to STOP. Car makes no attempt to stop but comes on through.

A-2 A LIGHT NEWSPAPER TRUCK is crossing the intersection at right angles. It swerves and skids to avoid the Dodge, which goes on as though nothing had happened. The truck stops with a panicky screech of tires. There is a large sign on the truck: “READ THE LOS ANGELES TIMES”. The truck driver’s infuriated face stares after the coupe.

And so begins the movie script for Double Indemnity.
