Based on the novel by Vera Caspary, this classic noir mystery about the disfiguring murder of the title character (Gene Tierney) has a detective (Dana Andrews) falling in love with the portrait of the fallen femme fatal. He looks to a trio of suspects to solve the bloody crime; a newspaper critic (Clifton Webb), Laura's playboy fiance (Vincent Price) and Laura's socialite aunt (Judith Anderson). The mystery is turned on its head when the still very alive Laura reappears.




  • Aspect Ratio Right!

    By Mike199
    I bought "Laura" in January 2015. I put the movie on Pause and measured the picture size on my TV screen. 40.3" wide divided by 26.8" high equals 1.50. So please forget all that posted nonsense about incorrect aspect ratios. The frames look perfect!
  • Laura

    By moonliter
    This movie is exceptional. It was a gift so I didn't know what the format was until I downloaded it. I just wished it wasn't squished into a letterbox format because it really is distracting! Hope Apple will make this in standard format soon. I will be checking back to see if they fix it because this is really a Five Star film but it's current availability has made that rating impossible.
  • Awesome

    I think it's awesome
  • It's NOT a widescreen movie!!!

    By WPDjr
    PEOPLE.... you're already on a computer! Do some Googling, please. Widescreen (Cinemascope, VistaVision) wasn't used until the 1950's in an effort to lure the public back into theaters. Television was exploding and people were staying home (or visiting neighbors) to watch "free" entertainment. Laura was released in 1944. Do a bit of reasearch before demanding what doesn't exist! BTW... Laura is a must have classic! Gene Tierney is STUNNING!!! It's got a neat trick to it and keeps you guessing until the end.
  • Great Cast

    By blue cowgirl
    The cast alone in this movie is amazing you have the ever sarcastic Clifton Webb and one of the few times that Vincent Price is not playing the horror bad guy which we all know he does so well. Then of course you have the ever dashing Dana Andrews who starred also in State Fair in which he had someone else sing for him becuase he didn't release to the company that he was an opera singer.Gene Tierney, is just beautiful and graceful. The film is my favourite. The set design is awesome along with the wardrobe and if you add that to the wonderful acting and script you have on awesome movie. (Then again I was always a sucker for old movies especially those with my name:D)
  • Apple presents movies & music the way they are submitted from the supplier.

    Be mad at Rupert Murdoch!
  • Apple should be ashamed

    By eaglesfan05
    Ditto the previous review. Fantastic Movie but why is it only available in the incorrect widescreen ratio? This film was shot in 1.37:1 and should be available in that format. If Apple insists on distorting classic films, it should warn you before purchase.

  • This is an amazing movie!!!

    By lauragirl_09
    This is probably my favorite movie ever. Not just because the title happens to be my name :). But Gene Tierney is an absolute CLASSIC beauty and a great actress. The acting and production is superb for that time period. It IS in black and white, but that only adds to the character of the movie. And watch the special features!!! Especially about the actors...Gene's story is very moving.
