LAURA
Dir. Otto Preminger (USA, 1944) 88 mins

Beautiful Laura Hunt (Gene Tierney ) is found shot to death in her apartment. Hard nosed Lieutenant Mark McPherson (Dana Andrews) is assigned as the lead investigator for the case. As he gets into the investigation, he learns that all the men in her life were in love with her including her fiancé Shelby Carpenter, and the women either loved her as a person or were envious and jealous of the attention she received from men. As he questions the suspects and witnesses, reads her diary and private letters, and most importantly stares at the large portrait of her that hangs over her mantle, McPherson himself falls under the spell of Laura Hunt. Three days into the investigation, someone walks through Laura's apartment door that changes the focus of the investigation and answers some nagging questions on McPherson's part, but also adds one more person to the long list of suspects.
