One of the most acclaimed movies of the original film noir cycle, Otto Preminger's 1944 mystery Laura stars Dana Andrews as a detective investigating the death of the titular Laura (Gene Tierney), whose portrait begins to haunt him from beyond the grave.

Eureka Entertainment will release Laura on blu-ray as part of their Masters of Cinema series on January 14th, 2019. The disc will offer both the original theatrical and extended cuts of the film.

Bonus features include commentaries by composer David Raksin and film professor Jeanine Basinger, and film historian Rudy Behlmer; four vintage radio adaptations of the film; and an archival featurette.

Check out Eureka's new trailer below.

The official synopsis reads:

Police detective Mark McPherson (Dana Andrews) is drawn into Manhattan high society as he investigates the death of stunning ad exec Laura Hunt (Gene Tierney), apparently shotgunned in her own apartment. The slithery suspects are numerous, led by effete, snobbish columnist Waldo Lydecker (Clifton Webb), and Laura's philandering fiancĂ© Shelby (Vincent Price), who's also been cavorting with Laura's wealthy aunt (Judith Anderson). McPherson begins to fall in love with Laura through a portrait in her home and the memories relayed by those who knew her…just as it becomes apparent that even the basic facts of the case might not be what they seemed.
