Dana Andrews and Gene Tierney in Otto Preminger's "Laura." 1944. A police detective falls in love with the woman whose murder he's investigating.
Hey @sophomorestudio asked #widn - nothing crafty so I'm posting a quick sketch I made of a striped dress Gene Tierney was wearing in the 1944 film Laura which was on TCM recently. The stripes were vertical on the bodice and horizontal on the skirt. The belt was made of the dress fabric. It's a great film and she wears some great clothes in it! Hey @sewdiyblog @the_sewing_room_alameda what are you making now?
Is 1945's "To Have and Have Not" really a film noir? Well, you got your Bogey and Becall, your Hawks, your Hemmingway and Falkner and even your Hoagy Carmichael. Let's check the dialogue: "Oh, maybe just whistle. You know how to whistle, don't you, Steve? You just put your lips together and... blow." Oh, yeah, film noir.
