Movie Trivia/Goofs

  • Rouben Mamoulian directed "Laura" at first, but was replaced by Otto Preminger, who also produced the picture. He immediately destroyed all of Mamoulian's footage, including a scripted ending where everything was revealed to be a dream, and brought a new cameraman onto the set.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When McPherson is seated talking to Carpenter at the country house, his position in relation to Carpenter changes between shots.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Lydecker is talking to Laura about Carpenter, he reaches for the file twice.
  • One of the film's most durable legacies was its theme song "Laura," composed over one weekend by David Raksin. Otto Preminger had originally wanted to use Duke Ellington's "Sophisticated Lady." According to Preminger biographer Gerald Pratley Preminger tried to get the rights to Gershwin's "Summertime" but was unable to get them.
