"...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..."
USA Today - 03/12/1993
...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..."
Entertainment Weekly - 03/18/2005
"[T]he whodunit still gleams like a pearl-handled pistol..."
Los Angeles Times - 04/03/2005
"[A] delectable romantic thriller..."

"Preminger's waspish masterpiece, which swings from high society noir to romantic mystery two thirds of the way through."
Total Film - 04/01/2012
5 stars out of 5 -- "[L]iterate and mannered in the best way....David Raksin's title song and score are sheer romantic swoon."
Classic film about a detective who, while investigating the murder of a beautiful woman, falls in love with her likeness in a painting. But was the woman really murdered'
