Wednesday Evening Film Series at the Historic Elsinore Theater in #SalemOR – TONIGHT!

Laura

(Otto Preminger, USA, 1944)

March 11 at 7:00 pm

Graced with a haunting musical theme, a first-rate cast, and a famously intriguing mystery, Laura was nominated for five Academy Awards.  A detective (Dana Andrews) conducts a police investigation of a murdered woman (Gene Tierney), whose painted portrait becomes a fixation for him, while the picture of her related by others –– in a series of flashbacks –– only increases her allure and his fascination.  Oscar-winning cinematography.  With Clifton Webb, Vincent Price, Judith Anderson (Rebecca).  Restored.  87 minutes.

“Classic mystery with gorgeous Tierney subject of murder plot… Fascinating, witty, classic, with Webb a standout … and Price in his finest non-horror performance .”  ––Leonard Maltin

“Stylish 1944 noir.  [Most] compelling is the gallery of personalities Preminger gives us and the gorgeous reverence with which [he] and his collaborators shoot the film’s alluring femme fatale.”  ––Time Out

“Everybody’s favorite chic murder mystery.”   ––Pauline Kael, The New Yorker
