The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946)

From the very first scene between Cora (Lana Turner) and Frank (John Garfield) it's a duel to the death.

Cora: My husband tells me your name is Frank.
Frank: That's right.
Cora: Well Frank, around here, you'll kindly do your reading on your own time.
Frank: Your husband, Nick told me I was through for the day and I thought he was boss around here.
Cora: The best way to get my husband to fire you would be not doing what I tell you to do.
Frank: Well, you haven't asked me to do anything - yet.

the Postman Always Rings Twice

Lana Turner, one of the stars of "The Postman Always Rings Twice."

This 1946 film, based on the novel by James M. Cain was the third adaptation, one French and the other Italian.  It was thought for a long time that the novel was unable to be adapted into a film because of Hayes Office objections to the content.  But, after the successful adaptation of Cain's other two novels (Double Indemnity and Mildred Pierce) the studios were interested to film it.  

This film is considered to be one of the best of the films in the genre of Film Noir.
