Laura, the Movie


Otto Preminger

Jay Dratler, Samuel Hoffenstein, and Betty Reinhardt

Gene Tierney, Dana Andrews, Clifton Webb, Vincent Price, and Judith Anderson

High style is the hallmark of this intelligently written mystery about a circle of suspicious Manhattan society folks who knew the dead Laura. Webb is delicious as the acid-tongued newspaper columnist. Detective Andrews falls in love with Laura, although he’s never met her. David Raksin’s theme music is haunting.
Webb lost his bid for a best supporting actor Oscar. Joseph LaShelle won his for the movie’s stunning black and white cinematography. Based on the novel by Vera Caspary.
