This had nothing to do with the Hays Code. It happened the exact same way in the book.
* 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.

* TitleDrop: Frank notes that when a person is expecting to get a letter, it's alright if you don't hear it the first time, because the postman always rings twice. They got off murdering Nick scot-free, but Cora is now dead and Frank on his way to receive the death penalty. He says that the postman has indeed rung a second time for each of them. This is different than the novel. Creator/JamesMCain, who wrote [[Literature/ThePostmanAlwaysRingsTwice the source novel]], admitted that the title was mostly a non-sequitur.

* FeetFirstIntroduction: Cora, in the most memorable scene in the picture. The camera starts at her feet and pans up to reveal Lana Turner wearing hot pants and a tank top. She makes an impression.

Indeed, one wonders why Cora's lawyer didn't take her to trial and win an acquittal instead of taking a manslaughter plea.
