LAURA

Dunaway Center, 23 School St., Ogunquit

Laura (1944) is one of the most stylish, elegant, moody, and witty classic film noirs ever made with an ensemble cast of characters.

Manhattan detective Mark McPherson (Dana Andrews)  investigates the murder of Madison Avenue executive Laura Hunt (Gene Tierney) in her fashionable apartment. Pursuing her murderer, McPherson quizzes Laura's arrogant best friend, gossip columnist Waldo Lydecker (Clifton Webb),  and her comparatively mild fiancé, Shelby Carpenter (Vincent Price). As the detective grows obsessed with the case, he finds himself falling in love with the dead woman.  The stunning cast also includes Judith Anderson and Dorothy Adams.

Lionel Hampton, Martha Tilton, Kid Ory, George Givot, Gene Krupa, Teddy Wilson, Harry James and many other musicians also made appearances in this film.
