Laura (1944)

Nominated for four Oscars and winning one, this is the classic noir mystery. Dana Andrews plays the detective who delves into the murder of the lovely Laura, with whom everyone is in love with. But Webb steals the show as the titular ingenue's creepily elegant social mentor, Waldo Lydecker.

Vinnie plays the polished Southern playboy Shelby Carpenter who loves the ladies and plays a mean piano. It's just a shame that the scene of him serenading a party of lovlies is now all but lost.
