A highly polished and debonair whodunit.

Less a crime film than a study in levels of obsession, Laura is one of those classic works that leave their subject matter behind and live on the strength of their seductive style.

Gene Tierney makes an appealing figure as the art executive and Vincent Price is convincing as a weak-willed ne'er-do-well.

The plot is deliberately perfunctory, the people deliciously perverse, and the mise-en-scène radical.
