Rebekah (hawkgirl4077) | 171 comments If Double Indemnity is anything like the Movie (great Movie if you liked the book see it, course now I have to read the book) it took place in California.


message 5: by Stacey (new)

Stacey (stacita) I actually read the book because it's one of my favorite movies! I quite liked it, but the end is interestingly different. It was just different enough that I'm not confident enough to be sure it was California in the book. But I may update if I remember to check next time I'm at the library.

Also - I did check at the library and determined that the book of Double Indemnity also takes place in California, so now I'm claiming California too.
