It is the sleekest of murder mysteries, and ahead of its time -- not least in having a gay suitor for Laura, and possibly two.

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.
May 18, 2006
A camp classic of a very particular variety.

Just watching Clifton Webb's deliciously nasty performance, as the effete critic and Laura's mentor, delivering the film's best lines, is worth the price of admission

This kooky film noir is so beautifully directed by Otto Preminger that all its protruding elements seem to slide delicately and accurately into place.

At times, the plotting takes leaps that the film's 87-minute run doesn't adequately support; but overall this is a gem.

...slightly overrated...

March 23, 2005
A genuine classic -- not only of film noir but of film, period -- director Otto Preminger's adaptation of Vera Caspary's novel lathers the murder-mystery with a heavy dollop of kinkiness.

The story is a good whodunnit, although it probably isn't half as clever as a mystery as it is a character study.

March 17, 2005
A masterfully complex -- and frequently campy -- portrait of all-consuming romantic self-delusion.

A great antidote to the 'old movies are no fun' attitude many people slip into as soon as they learn a film is in black and white.

A classic. Clifton Webb is a delight; Tierney never looked lovelier. And its score is unforgettable. One to watch.
| Original Score: 4/5
January 27, 2004
A classic thriller/whodunit of the 1940s. Unfortunately, it remains solidly in the past.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
September 30, 2003
A classic murder film worth seeing over and over.

Did Hollywood ever produce a more seductive mystery or a creepier romance? I wouldn't change a line, a frame, or a performance in this film.
| Original Score: 5/5
