Femme Fatales

In 'Double Indemnity,' Walter Neff (Fred MacMurray) is sexist, refusing to believe a blonde bombshell (Barbara Stanwyck) is as capable as a man of such duplicity.

A modern gentleman recognizes a honey trap. He might still proceed into the ambuscade, but he will do so cautiously, fully aware of the risks.

(He also appreciates a good turn of phrase and applies the term as often as appropriate.)

    I love Rhys Darby, but How to be a Gentleman is truly terrible. I bet CBS replaces it with a rerun of a Monday show in less than six weeks.
