Otto Preminger / US, 1944 / 88 min.
This film made actress Gene Tierney a star and Dave Raksin’s theme music a jazz standard. Laura, written and produced by Otto Preminger, is above all a mystery, the Twin Peaks of film noir.
Rain-drenched streets, curls of cigarette smoke, and men with a dark past. An inescapable fate and a femme fatale, sly and sexually independent. This summer Eye is presenting an extended programme of classic film noir, featuring masterpieces such as The Third Man and In a Lonely Place starring Humphrey Bogart. With vintage 35mm prints and newly restored works.
