(1944) Sparse mystery embroidered with moody romance from Vera Caspary’s novel about a police detective (Dana Andrews) investigating the reported murder of the beautiful title character (Gene Tierney) whose rise in the New York social set was aided by an influential radio commentator (Clifton Webb at his WASPish best). Things, of course, are not what they seem as director Otto Preminger probes the dark side of high society life while focusing on the dour detective’s growing fascination with the glamorous Laura and the vitriolic journalist’s feelings for his former protege. More for romantics than mystery fans, there are some scenes of menace, stylized violence, and implied sexual encounters. (A-II -- adults and adolescents) TCM (cable)
