retro trailer: ‘Laura’

Take a look back at an old trailer…

“She’s day-ud, wrapped in plastic…”

No, wait, that was the other Laura, Laura Palmer of Twin Peaks. Though David Lynch took a lot of inspiration from this classic 1944 movie. If you haven’t seen Laura, well, you’re in for a treat…

“Every woman will feel that when it comes to men, Laura gets by with murder…” Oh, don’t we all, though?

Laura is out of print on DVD in Region 1 but available in used copies; it’s in print in Region 2.

    Supposedly one of the top 10 film noirs ever made.
    Of course back then, they didn’t know they were making film noirs.
    The genre hadn’t been classified yet.

    But i look forward to seeing it one day.

    Oh, one of my favorite movies ever. I first saw it when I was… eleven? twelve? very young and impressionable, and I fell madly in love with both spineless gigolo Vincent Price and weirdly necrophiliac Dana Andrews. Ha! Well done, wee self! That’s not weird at all. (But they were so handsome! And Gene Tierney was stunning. And the movie was… okay, I need to go watch my copy right now.)

    Was that really THE Vincent Price? I’d never seen him without wrinkles before.

  • Anne-Kari

    Yep, that’s Vincent Price. He started in movies back in 1938 and had over 175 credits when he died in 1993. But I think my favorite was Edward Scissorhands :)

    I really wish they still made movies like this. Maybe then I’d actually pay money to go to the movies rather than waiting until it’s on cable.

  • Yes, I agree. I saw this just last week and I liked it quite well. Of course, it was a library rental but nowadays it seems like some of the most entertaining movies I see are library rentals. And not just because you don’t have to worry about whether or not the particular movie is chosen to worth the price of admission.

    Plus the two libraries I tend to rent from have a lot of old movies and TV shows that you just can’t find at the local Blockbuster. (Which explains why I haven’t used my Blockbuster card in ages.)

    Then again they also have a lot of relatively new movies like Borat and The Family Stone–but then nobody’s perfect…
