Synopsis 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.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?LAURA was added to the Library of Congress National Film Registry in 1999. Additional cast: Clyde Fillmore (Bullitt); Ralph Dunn (Fred Callahan); Lee Tung Foo (Servant); and Harold Schlickenmayer, Harry Strang and Lane Chandler (Detectives)....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......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...[T]he whodunit still gleams like a pearl-handled pistol...[A] delectable romantic thriller...Preminger's waspish masterpiece, which swings from high society noir to romantic mystery two thirds of the way through.5 stars out of 5 -- [L]iterate and mannered in the best way....David Raksin's title song and score are sheer romantic swoon.
