Cain in 1938 James Mallahan Cain (July 1, 1892 – October 27, 1977) was an American novelist, journalist and screenwriter. He is widely regarded as a progenitor of the hardboiled school of American crime fiction.

His novels ''The Postman Always Rings Twice'' (1934), ''Double Indemnity'' (1936), ''Serenade'' (1937), ''Mildred Pierce'' (1941) and ''The Butterfly'' (1947) brought him critical acclaim and an immense popular readership in America and abroad.
