The music, composed by David Raksin for the movie Laura , which starred Gene Tierney and Dana Andrews , is heard frequently in the movie. The film's director, Otto Preminger , had originally wanted to use Duke Ellington 's " Sophisticated Lady " as the theme, but Raksin was not convinced that it was suitable. Angered, Preminger gave Raksin one weekend to compose an alternative melody. Raksin later said, and maintained for the rest of his days, that when, over that weekend, his wife sent him a "Dear John" letter , the haunting theme seemed to write itself. The lyrics were written by Johnny Mercer after the film made the tune popular.
