For more on _Laura_ and the significant influence of Wilkie Collins on Caspary, see A.B. Emrys's "Laura, Vera, and Wilkie: Deep Sensation Roots of a Noir Novel" (_CLUES: A Journal of Detection_, Spring 2005: 5-11) and _The Secrets of Grownups_, Caspary's autobiography (New York: McGraw, 1979).

************ I have wanted to see the movie for a long time. I've heard it is a classic noir. Noir is many things to different people, but when I read it, I didn't really get a noir feel from it. I got more of a cozy feel from it.

Are back issues of Clues available for sell, Beth? I've been meaning to get a subscription to the journal.
