LAURA

75 Years of Film Noir, Part 4: Prime Noir of the 1940s

Double Feature with THE RECKLESS MOMENT

(1944) dir Otto Preminger w/Gene Tierney, Dana Andrews, Clifton Webb, Vincent Price, Judith Anderson [88 min; DCP]
Otto Preminger’s LAURA is a stylish film noir classic centering on a morally bereft group of upper class society types. Title character Laura Hunt (Tierney) has been murdered but retains a prominent part in the picture thanks to a looming portrait. Tough-talking New York detective Mark McPherson (Andrews) investigates the killing and becomes increasingly enamored of the supposedly deceased Laura.

★★★★ “That ‘Laura’ continues to weave a spell—and it does—is a tribute to style over sanity.” – Roger Ebert

★★★★★ “Few movies make you feel dirtier, and so perversely grateful for the pleasure.” – Keith Uhlich, Time Out
