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

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

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

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'
