Auditions for "Laura" by Vera Caspary and George Sklar.
A film noir murder mystery. It is 1944 in New York City, and when detective Mark McPherson first falls in love with Laura Hunt, he knows he's in love with a phantom - for Laura is dead, and Mark is in charge of her murder investigation. From her portrait, her letters, her personal effects, and from his contacts with the three men who loved her, Mark has created an image of a woman tantalizingly real. As the story progresses, Mark discovers lies, infidelities, and hidden identities - all leading him into a labyrinthine search for Laura's killer. Riddled with surprises, full of dynamic characters and rich, fast-moving dialogue, "Laura" is a thrilling mystery in the film noir style that will keep audiences guessing "whodunnit" right up to the final scene.
