Movie: Double Idemnity (1944)

Phyllis Dietrichson is not above seducing anyone—thirsty insurance agents, her step-daughter's boyfriend—or murdering anyone to further her own goals. She murders her husband in a specific manner to double down on the life insurance money, plots to murder her barely suspicious stepdaughter, and probably murdered her husband's original wife as well. And yet, none of the crimes are tied to her because, like a true femme G, she gets p-whipped men to do all the heavy lifting, men who for some reason never stop to consider if one day they'll be next on her list.
