The postman always rings twice by Tay Garnett ( Visual )
55 editions published between 1946 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Frank Chambers (John Garfield) is a drifter who lands at a roadside gas station owned by jolly old Nick Smith (Cecil Kellaway) and his young, blonde wife Cora (Lana Turner). In a matter of minutes, Frank and Cora fall in love, and plot to murder Nick. Eventually wedding bells ring, the body count rises, and the gavel slams-of course, nothing ever goes as planned.
