Gaslight. 1944. USA. Directed by George Cukor. 111 min.

Screenplay by John Van Druten, Walter Reisch, John L. Balderston, from a play by Patrick Hamilton. With Charles Boyer, Ingrid Bergman, Joseph Cotten. George Cukor makes the most of Bergman’s almost mystical ability to command the audience’s sympathy in this sly, silky adaptation of Patrick Hamilton’s gothic thriller. Deft villainy from Charles Boyer, as the charming stranger who meets and marries the naïve Bergman: is she going crazy, or is he up to something when the gaslight dims? With Angela Lansbury, in her film debut, as the slatternly new maid. Courtesy Warner Bros. Selected by Ingrid Rossellini.
