Production[ edit ] Otto Preminger was looking for a theatrical project to direct and first became aware of Vera Caspary's story when her agent offered him the first draft of a play called Ring Twice for Laura.
Preminger liked the high-society setting and the unusual plot twist but felt the work needed a major revision and offered to rewrite it with its author. He and Caspary disagreed about the direction they should take it and she opted to collaborate with writer George Sklar instead.
Marlene Dietrich expressed interest in portraying the title character, but without the attachment of Dietrich or another major star, Caspary was unable to find a producer willing to finance a national tour or a Broadway run, and she abandoned the project.
George Sanders and Laird Cregar were announced as the leads. Zanuck was fulfilling his military duty, assigned Preminger the task of developing the books for the screen.
Recalling the differences of opinion he and Caspary had had, Preminger opted not to involve her until the first draft was completed. He sensed the more interesting character was not Laura but Waldo Lydecker and expanded his role accordingly, but Caspary was unhappy with the changes to her plot.
In retaliation, he announced Preminger could produce but not direct Laura and assigned him to helm In the Meantime, Darlinginstead. Several directors, including Lewis Milestonewere offered and rejected Laura until Rouben Mamoulian finally agreed to direct.
Mamoulian immediately ignored all of Preminger's directives as producer and began to rewrite the script. The producer felt casting an actor with a reputation for playing sinister roles would lead the audience to become suspicious of Lydecker earlier than necessary.
Fox casting director Rufus LeMaire and Zanuck both objected to Webb because of his effeminate mannerisms, exactly what Preminger felt suited the character.
Preminger filmed the actor delivering a monologue from the Coward play, and Zanuck agreed that Webb was perfect for the role. Filming began on April 27,and from the start Mamoulian had problems with his cast. He offered relative newcomers Gene Tierney and Dana Andrews little support, allowed theatrically trained Judith Anderson to play to the balcony instead of reining in her performance, and virtually ignored Webb, who had learned the director was unhappy with his casting.
After viewing the early rushes, Zanuck called a meeting with Mamoulian and Preminger, each of whom blamed the other for the problems on the set. Preminger finally convinced Zanuck the material needed a more subtle approach than Mamoulian was willing to give it, and the studio head allowed the producer to fire him and direct the film himself.
Filming was completed on June 29, slightly over budget but within the projected timetable. Following a screening of the Zanuck version, columnist Walter Winchell approached the studio head and told him, "I didn't get [the ending].
You've got to change it. The director wanted to use " Sophisticated Lady " by Duke Ellington for the main theme, but Raksin objected to the choice. Alfred Newmanmusic director for Fox, convinced Preminger to give Raksin a weekend to compose an original tune.
In Kritzerland released the complete Raksin score along with test demos and the suite from the original album as bonus tracks.Welcome to Web Hosting Talk. WHT is the largest, most influential web and cloud hosting community on the Internet.
