Femnista Article About "Laura" for Halloween

I know what you're thinking.  But, Hamlette, Laura is not a Halloween movie.  It's not even scary.  How did you get away with writing about it for Halloween???


Well, it so happens that our Femnista issue is themed around the idea of being "haunted," and Detective Mark McPherson (Dana Andrews) is definitely haunted by Laura (Gene Tierney), the woman whose murder he's investigating.  You can read my article, "Obsession or Love," right here, and if you want a full review of the movie, I did one a few years ago here.

  1. It was a great article!! :D I love how we both wrote about non-Halloween-ish things (on the face of it), but they both fit so well with the 'haunted' theme.

    1. Thank you, Katie! Yes, I'm glad we have the freedom to kind of tweak the topics to suit our interests somewhat :-)

  2. Hi, I enjoyed reading your article on Laura. It's such a beautiful film but your article made me think of it in a whole new way. I've wanted to read the book for a while, so thanks for reviewing that as well! I have been loving what I've seen of your blog. So glad to have found you!

    1. Hello, Classic Movie Muse! I'm so glad you've found me too! Feel free to browse around -- I've got 17 years-worth of posts, and I totally love comments on old ones :-)

      I really dig Vera Caspary's book, so I hope you can find a copy! When I read it, I can always hear Dana Andrews' voice so clearly for all of Mark's lines -- almost like it was written with him in mind. Mmm, so good.

    2. Wow, that's amazing! 17 years! I definitely will be browsing.

      That sounds delightful, especially for a rainy night! Love that original 1940's cover too. What a great find!

    3. Classic Movie Muse, yeah, I got into blogging right after I finished college, when blogs were first a thing, and I've loved it ever since! I look forward to chatting with you about all things classic movies :-)
