Love is eternal. It has been the strongest motivation for human actions throughout centuries. Love is stronger than life.

Preminger spared no expense. With a $15,000 budget, the designers had a field day in creating the most luxurious costuming in a long time. Even Gene’s underwear was meticulously designed with black lace panels threaded with baby blue ribbon. Her pink pajamas were embroidered with sequins. She stood for hours, passing the time by chewing jellybeans as the designers pinned and poked and tucked the many outfits into position. Preminger insisted on real diamonds and pearls being rented for the duration of the shooting. His Laura would not be wearing fake jewelry. (x)

Producer Otto Preminger has gone to $15,000 lengths to provide Tierney with suitable trappings. They include such items as a ‘home fireside’ dress, with a skirt of gray-and-white squirrel: no phony glass jewelry, but real diamonds and pearls rented from a jeweler for the duration of the shooting, black-lace underwear threaded with baby-blue ribbon; orchid pink pajamas embroidered with sequins. Miss Tierney can buy whatever garments she wants: the rest will go back into the bin to be worn by secondary players in other films. - Look magazine on Gene Tierney’s $15,000 wardrobe in Laura (1944)

 I never have been and I never will be bound by anything I don’t do of my own free will.
