70 – Laura (1944)

Standard

Director: Otto Preminger Starring: Gene Tierney, Dana Andrews, Clifton Webb, Vincent Price Running time: 88 mins

Subject: Deliciously witty from first line to poignant last, Preminger keeps you guessing which of the fantastic characters shot the beautiful Laura Hunt (Tierney) as the noir mirrors its leading lady and steals your heart.

Like: Femme fatale with a heart.

Core truth: “I must say, for a charming, intelligent girl, you certainly surrounded yourself with a remarkable collection of dopes.”
