Splendid film noir outing whose two leading characters have an explosive chemistry. Wonderful story twist (spoiler alert) for flatfoot, Mark (Andrews), who falls in love with Laura (Tierney at her loveliest) who is presumed dead. But wait! She's not dead. She's back. But someone did want her dead because the woman who opened Laura's apartment door took a shotgun blast to the face. Excellent supporting cast with her controlling mentor Waldo who gradually comes unglued and the very, very, very needy why-in-the-world-would-she-date-him? boyfriend, Shelby (Vincent Price) who is comforted and kept by the best fictional character name EVER for a woman who keeps men who don't marry her: Ann Treadwell. And she treads really well. Waldo's last radio broadcast while Laura listens is super creepy and scary. As is the killer's final attempt to kill Laura. A must-see.

The film noir which introduced director Preminger to the mainstream. Tierney & Andrews are terrific as the leads, as are Price & Anderson in their supporting performances, but Webb stole the scenes & an Oscar nomination. The film won an Acdemy Award for it's atmospheric cinematography. A great, iconic film noir that capitalized on Tierney's beauty. I give it a 4.5/5.
Este filme é o melhor de todos os tempos. Com atuações espetaculares e um roteiro envolvente. Muito bom.

"Policeman falls in Love with Murdered Woman Who is Still Alive"
Laura has a wonderful story line, great acting and the music adds a superb touch. However I purchased the DVD and it is very dark, a shame, because it takes away from this beautiful black and white movie, altogether ruins the viewing, I feel a waste of my money.
Everything falls right into place.
The casting, directing and projection of a lifestyle completly disconnected from the horrors of WWII all come together to make this flic a great example of what the movies are all about. I have not seen this film for some time, and note that it is not schedualed. The plot is not strong, but its weakness is more than overcome by the actors, directors and everyone else who produced this great example of WWII films capable of giving a few hours of much needed diversion. In addition to the "Buy War Bonds" banner which usually came with the ending credits, the film itself probably helped in some way to aid the troops in the field, and the families at the home front.
Haunting Film Noir
The casting of this movie is so flawless that it adds to the mystique of the movie itself. Makes you just want to turn down the lights and become enveloped in the film's aura....A GREAT MOVIE
- Jay Higgins
What an amazing film. Expertly directed by Otto Preminger with an absolutely haunting performance by the gorgeous Gene Tierney. Dana Andrews does a great job in his best role besides "The Best Years of Our Lives." Clifton Webb however gives his most memorable performance, he is brilliant. Vincent Price and Judith Anderson are excellent in supporting roles. Great story.
Great mystery and romance
I've always enjoyed watching this move because of the suspense. The movie has a wonderful cast with the beautiful Gene Tierney playing Laura. I would love to see this movie scheduled soon, movie is a classic with mystery and romance.
Can't get enough of this movie
This is one of those movies that is so captivating that if it was a good book you just couldn't put it down. It makes me long for a different era. Everything about it - the architecture of her apartment, the clothes, especially the music - is so perfect. I would watch it everytime it is shown.
- Melvenia Davis
This movie has everything, the who, the what, the when, but how was it done. It is hard to fine a movie today with all this and it makes you think. The stars chosen for their roles are perfection in action. What a movie, what a classic. My question why is it not shown more. Please show this movie often. The music is superb. It puts you in that special place of--ahaa this is going to be outstanding.
A class Film Noir
Please schedule this movie. It is prehaps the best film noir ever made except for made The Third Man. The actors are excellent, the music is divine, direction and script are superb. I can watch this film over and over again and see something different each time. I never grow tired of Laura.

- Lillian Lee
laura is a lovely, stylish film noir movie. loved gene, clifton, and dana in it. one of my favorites.
PLEASE Schedule this soon!
I caught part of this one night on regular TV. From what I saw it was a good cast with a story that shifted gears more often than an Inter-state truck driver.
- Joyce Alois
This is one of my favorite movies of all. Please play it soon as well as The Uninvited with Ray Milland. They don't make movies like these anymore. Joyce
Would like to request scheduling of "Laura" on TMC Movies in the very near future. This is one of the great "classics" and I missed it last year.
