Director Otto Preminger's classic 1944 film Laura is playing at the Opera House Tuesday night at 7pm. Laura stars Gene Tierney as the beautiful and bewitching title character, Dana Andrews as a no nonsense working class detective, Vincent Price as a southern playboy and Clifton Webb - who was nominated for best supporting actor as the witty, vain and snobbish newspaper columnist Waldo Lydecker.
The movie features wonderful dialogue, good casting and great acting, great black and white cinematography and a classic score with a memorable theme by David Raksin.
This film noir (French for "black film) is as compulsively watchable and enjoyable 88 minutes as you will find in a movie.
I haven't posted the trailer because it gives away too much of the movie. If you haven't seen it you are warned.
