Marty is a nice guy, living with his mother in the Bronx, hanging around with similarly socially inept friends, dreaming of owning his own butcher's shop, and maybe even finding a girl to love.

A detective investigating the murder of a young woman becomes increasingly obsessed with the image of Laura that he has created in his mind, an obsession he comes to share with the acerbic Waldo Lydecker, a man of entirely different temperament and personality. In this perversely ambiguous study of necrophilia the gliding camera probes the illusion-in-reality theme central to Preminger's work
