Frank Chambers (John Garfield) drifts into a dusty rural California town, in search of a good meal. At the diner, he finds a meal, a job, and a beautiful woman named Cora (Lana Turner). Within a small bit of time, Frank and Cora have a passionate affair. But Cora is married already, to a man she doesn't love. She wants to start over and live a new life with Frank, but not lose the diner. They see the murder of Cora's husband Nick as a perfect solution. How will they deal with the consequences of their actions, and will they get caught?

The better-known adaptation of ''Literature/ThePostmanAlwaysRingsTwice'', directed by Tay Garnett and released in 1946. It is considered one of the key entries in the FilmNoir genre.

* LaserGuidedKarma: With a dose of UsefulNotes/TheHaysCode and its insistence that you CantGetAwayWithNuthin. Cora and Frank get away with Nick's murder--but after the car wreck that kills Cora, Frank is convicted of murdering her, even though it was really an accident.

* UglyGuyHotWife: To the point of absurdity, with the scorching hot Cora married to dumpy diner owner Nick. Somewhat unconvincingly explained by Cora--she married Nick because she was tired of everyone else in town hitting on her.
