Laura (1944) Film Review

Laura
DIRECTOR: Otto Preminger
BOTTOM LINE: One of the classic film noirs with of the great noir scores (David Raksin). Gene Tierney is born, and Clifton Webb becomes a star in his fifties.

“I shall never forget the weekend Laura died. A silver sun burned through the sky like a huge magnifying glass. It was the hottest Sunday in my recollection. I felt as if I were the only human being left in New York. For with Laura’s horrible death, I was alone. I, Waldo Lydecker, was the only one who really knew her. And I had just begun to write Laura’s story when – another of those detectives came to see me. I had him wait. I could watch him through the half-open door. I noted that his attention was fixed upon my clock. There was only one other in existence, and that was in Laura’s apartment in the very room where she was murdered”
