Nominated for five Academy Awards, this stylish mystery thriller twists and turns with new suspects, new evidence and unexpected revelations. A wealthy, acid-tongued journalist (Clifford Webb) becomes entranced with a beautiful young career woman named Laura (Gene Tierney). But entrancement leads to possessiveness and shortly before her wedding to a dashing young playboy (Vincent Price), she is found murdered. Stirred by her portrait and adoring descriptions by her admirers, the detective (Dana Andrews) assigned to her case finds he, too, is strangely under Laura`s spell. With it`s haunting romantic score by David Raskin, this "brilliant... extraordinary... absorbing entertainment" (Hollywood Reporter) from director Otto Preminger is a renowned example of 1940`s film noir.
