Laura” directed in 1944 by Otto Preminger and starring Gene Tierney and Dana Andrews. “A police detective (Dana Andrews) falls in love with the woman (Gene Tierney) whose murder he is investigating.” Gene Tierney is breathtaking beautiful and mysterious.

Whirlpool” directed by Otto Preminger in 1950 and starring Gene Tierney and Richard Comte. “A woman (Gene Tierney) secretly suffering from kleptomania is hypnotized in an effort to cure her condition. Soon afterwards, she is found at the scene of a murder with no memory of how she got there and seemingly no way to prove her innocence.” Gene Tierney is perfect in the role of a lost and neurotic woman ; it is a real psychological thriller.
