Laura is a 1944 American film noir produced and directed by Otto Preminger. It stars Gene Tierney, Dana Andrews and Clifton Webb along with Vincent Price and Judith Anderson. The screenplay by Jay Dratler, Samuel Hoffenstein and Betty Reinhardt is based on the 1943 novel Laura by Vera Caspary.
In 1999, Laura was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant". The American Film Institute named it one of the 10 best mystery films of all time.

A little convoluted on the plotting side, but worth the attention required. Snooty socialite columnist Clifton Webb is frantically jealous of protégé Gene Tierney's cheap taste in men, and Dana Andrews is just presentable enough a police detective to prove him worse than wrong. Vincent Price and Judith Anderson are great as a couple of upscale ne'er do wells. Most of the cast was uncredited, including Dorothy Adams as Bessie the maid.
