Laura (1944)

If you like– Gone Baby Gone, The Village,  The Prestige

Synopsis– The film opens on a new homicide investigation: a successful advertising executive, Laura Hunt (Gene Tierney), has been found dead in her apartment, and handsome detective Mark McPherson (Dana Andrews) must solve her murder.  The detective interviews everyone associated with the late exec, but conflicting stories and suspicious characters obstruct  McPherson’s efforts until a sudden and bizarre break in the case changes everything.

Why it’s better– Vincent Price (yes, the guy with the scary voice-over in “Thriller”) plays Laura’s sweet, southern boyfriend. SUCH a change of pace for him! Also, the twist in the middle will have you reeling. Unless you’re much more astute then me, which is totally possible.
