  1. That old saw: "you never get a second chance to make a good first impression" comes to mind with the opening clip of "Laura". We immediately know that Lydecker is vain to the extreme; he thinks he is smarter, more cultured and superior to everyone. McPherson comes across as self assured (he isn't impressed with Lydecker; he leaves his hat on inside) but also a "man of action", which is confirmed by Lydecker's recognition that McPherson was a hero. At this point Lydecker doesn't see McPherson as an adversary, but he will. I too noticed the smirk; a sign of the opinion McPherson has for Lydecker
