LAURA (1944, 85 min.)
Otto Preminger's masterful and haunting directorial debut investigates the deep levels of human obsession when police detective (Dana Andrews) falls in love with Laura (Gene Tierney), the woman whose murder he is investigating.
THE HITCH-HIKER (1953, 71 min.)
Two friends on a fishing-trip (Edmond O'Brien and Frank Lovejoy, both fantastic) make the mistake of their lives when they pick up a sociopathic hitch-hiker who never closes his right eye, not even when he’s sleeping. He delights in threatening the two men—telling them that they are both marked for death before they reach his destination, a ferry boat in Baja. Directed and co-written by Ida Lupino.
