  • A classic noirish mystery with a consummate ensemble of actors. Dana Andrews adroitly plays the detective who delves into the murder of the stunningly beautiful Laura, with whom it seems everyone, including the detective himself, is in love. But Webb steals the show as the titular ingenue's creepily elegant social mentor, Waldo Lydecker. Based on the novel by Vera Caspary. Academy Award Nominations: 4, including Best Director. Academy Awards: Best (Black-and-White) Cinematography.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...That LAURA continues to weave a spell -- and it does -- is a tribute to style over sanity....The music lends a haunted, nostalgic, regretful cast to everything it plays under..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    ...This all-timer made a standard of the title tune, launched co-star Clifton Webb's screen career....[and] it also gives Vincent Price and Judith Anderson meaty suspect roles..."
    USA Today

    "[T]he whodunit still gleams like a pearl-handled pistol..."
    Entertainment Weekly

    "[A] delectable romantic thriller..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "Preminger's waspish masterpiece, which swings from high society noir to romantic mystery two thirds of the way through."
    Sight and Sound

    5 stars out of 5 -- "[L]iterate and mannered in the best way....David Raksin's title song and score are sheer romantic swoon."
