LAURA
1944, 20th Century Fox, 88 min, Dir: Otto Preminger

Investigating a murder, chain-smoking Detective McPherson (Dana Andrews) falls in love with the dead woman - only to find out that it wasn't she who was murdered. Even in a genre known for its convoluted twists, LAURA is a one-of-a-kind film noir. The brilliant cast includes Gene Tierney as the gorgeous Laura, Clifton Webb as Waldo Lydecker and Vincent Price as Laura's fiancé, Shelby Carpenter. The famous haunting and nostalgic musical theme by David Raksin is unforgettable. The film is said to have been an inspiration for David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks.”


BONJOUR TRISTESSE
1958, Sony Repertory, 94 min, USA, Dir: Otto Preminger

In Otto Preminger’s haunting film (adapted by Arthur Laurents from Francoise Sagan’s novel), the underrated Jean Seberg plays a precociously spoiled teen whose wealthy reprobate father (David Niven) decides to settle down by marrying repressed Deborah Kerr, with catastrophic results. Exquisitely filmed (by Georges Perinal) in CinemaScope and shifting between black-and-white and deeply saturated color, Preminger’s film sensitively manifests the mysteries of growing up. When Seberg’s character finally makes the difficult transition from teenager to adult, it is with a tragic resonance that gives poignant meaning to the film’s title (which translates, "Good Day, Sadness").
