review: Laura

Murder mystery with a little bit of a twist.
Laura is about the death of a woman and the investigation into her murder.
The men in this film basically fall down in front of this gorgeous woman. Rightfully so, Gene Tierny is gorgeous in this film. And more than that, she is kind, and something about her calls out to be taken care of.
All acting is quite good -especially Clifton Web. Seriously odd. This also features a younger Vincent Price. If it weren't for the voice, you would never know it was him.
I kind of like this movie. It's interesting, with a quite a unique way of working in this established genre.
Very interesting.
It was nominated for 4 academy awards but only won the Oscar for B&W Cinematography. It is on 2 AFI lists - one for Best Scores, and in the Top 10 of the Mystery genre.
4 out of 5 stars
