Frank Chambers (John Garfield) is a drifter who stops at a rural diner for a meal, and ends up working there. The diner is operated by a beautiful young woman, Cora Smith (Lana Turner), and her much older husband, Nick (Cecil Kellaway). Frank and Cora soon have an affair after they meet. Cora is tired of her situation, married to a man she does not love, and working at a diner that she wishes to own. She and Frank scheme to murder Nick in order to start a new life together without her losing the diner. Their first attempt at the murder is a failure, but they eventually succeed. The local prosecutor, Kyle Sackett (Leon Ames), suspects what has occurred, but doesn't have enough evidence to prove it. As a tactic intended to get Cora and Frank to turn on one another, he tries only Cora for the crime. Although they do turn against each other, a clever ploy from Cora's lawyer prevents Cora's full confession from coming into the hands of the prosecutor. With the tactic having failed to generate any new evidence for the prosecution, Cora benefits from a plea bargain in which she pleads guilty to manslaughter and receives probation. Frank and Cora eventually patch together their tumultuous relationship, and now plan for a future together. But as they seem to be prepared finally to live "happily ever after", Cora dies in a car accident. Ironically, although it was in fact truly an accident, the circumstances seem suspicious enough that Frank is then wrongly convicted of murdering her by having staged the accident. He is sentenced to death. 书的名字有些不太理解,也许在当时的社会一个邮差按几次门铃大概有着某方面的含义。      虽然这是一本写在七十年前的书,不过故事今天读来依然很有可看性。一个流浪汉偶然的机会认识了一个小餐厅的老板娘,并勾搭成奸。他们制造假车祸害死了餐厅老板,警察明明知道这是个犯罪行为,最终却眼睁睁地看着这二位逃脱了法律的惩罚,而且还白拿到了保险金。正当读者以为二者从此如愿地混在一起生活时,又一场真正的车祸夺去了老板娘的性命,而流浪汉这次却被各种不利的证据送上了绞刑架。      在本书的序言里,介绍了很多关于作者和这本书在当年引起的社会反响,以及作者本人在文坛上的一个重要位置,就像很多经典作品一样,虽然无法身临当时的社会背景下去确切体会,至少让我对此书心生敬意,更何况虽然时过七十年,读起来栩栩如生,如同就发生在当下。
