The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946)

Filmmakers struggle to make film noir work nowadays, but Tay Garnett dit it - with all sorts of censorship restrictions - in his 1946 production of James M. Cain's THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE, with Lana Turner as the seductress who ensnares James Garfield. It still crackles today.

I've seen it, but don't really remember it. Not sure if that's an indictment of the movie or of my shoddy memory.
