Double Indeminity refers to the film noir of the same title of course. Here the double indeminty is played out in a different way. Of course you have the two seductive femme fatales, but also in the background feature the great Sea Biscuit and War Admiral. Two Great horses trying for their lives are racing's double insurance against the real cheat. In the back ground sadly hangs a reminder of the only way to stop such horses: it is of course a painting of Phar Lap; killed by American gangsters.
In this image however a coup has gone astray and a veteran crooked stable lad pays the price of not delivering to the gangsters who have taken his advice and failed to land their coup.
The femme fatales in the bar act as a distraction from the brutal treatment being meted out to the Head Lad by the hoods.
Note the sign in the background: Jockey Club Notice.
With the movie Watchmen partly being about the same period and themes, it is worth remembering:
"Who watches the Watchmen?"
