This is so famous but it failed for me.
A cop investigates the murder of a charismatic business woman. He falls for her and mopes in her apartment and listens to all her would-be lovers and friends talk about her.
The music was heavy-handed and the story was slow. The actors were all fine: Dana Andrews, Gene Tierney, Vincent Price, Clifton Webb.
It’s just that nothing much was worth caring about. Not the characters, not the relationships, not the puzzle, not the costumes, nor the set decoration (hated that lacy lamp-shade).
I think it might have more to do with men and how they can get crushes on fantasy women. I kept reminding him that she was dead, for heaven’s sakes. Laura, even in flashback, was kind of a cipher.
