A police detective (Dana Andrews) investigating the death of a young woman (Gene Tierney) grows suspicious of her dubious associates, who include a fawning, jaded journalist (Clifton Webb) and her dupe fiancé (Vincent Price), while gradually falling in love with the victim. Otto Preminger's Laura is  a smart, cynical, and elegant noir, offering a compact, fast paced mystery and fine performances from Andrews, Price, and especially Webb.
