June 20, 2010: Special Screening

Truman Capote’s Laura

Jun 20, 2010

Los Angeles

This extremely rare 1968 TV remake of Otto Preminger’s iconic film noir was cowritten by Truman Capote as a favor for his friend Lee Radziwill, sister of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, who was attempting to forge an acting career. Radziwill (billed here as Lee Bouvier, her maiden name) stars as New York career girl Laura Hunt (portrayed by Gene Tierney in the 1944 film), who, as the program opens, is believed to have been shotgunned to death in her own apartment. Radziwill’s performance as the hypnotically beautiful Laura was derided by the press, bringing an abrupt halt to her acting aspirations; Brit actor George Sanders, portraying the prissy Waldo Lydecker, steals the show. Also starring are Robert Stack (in the Dana Andrews role, as the gruff NYC police detective who becomes obsessed with Laura), Arlene Francis, and Farley Granger. David Susskind, a titan of early television, produced.
