Rating: 10/10 -- Preminger deals in facades, with how perception cheats us, right down to the ideal image of Laura as a portrait. (Cinémathèque Annotations on Film) Full Review

Laura (1944) is elegance incarnate in a genre known for its hard edge, the sleekest, silkiest noir of all. Full Review

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

...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...

Rating: 10/10 -- It's one of the smartest of all noirs, and thus among the most enticingly savage and dangerous. Full Review

What remains of Laura is not only the ability of the scriptwriters and director to keep the mystery of the film noir but the originality of the dramatic structure and the attempt to delve into the psychological characteristics. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review

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.

Plot Synopsis:

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'
