Tagline: Strange drama of a captive sweetheart!

Plot: Director George Cukor draws magnificent performances from his stars in this powerfully guided study in obsession. GASLIGHT is a suspenseful, atmospheric mystery that perfectly captures the smoky, smoggy feel of Victorian London. Ingrid Bergman won an Academy Award for her role as a wealthy socialite who marries a witty and charming sociopath; Ocscar-nominated Charles Boyer is equally spellbinding in his role as her monstrous husband. When famous opera star Alice Alquist is murdered, Gregory Anton (Boyer), who hopes to steal the rare jewels the star has hidden, manages to court and marry the singerís niece, beautiful but naive Paula (Ingrid Bergman). His plan is to slowly drive his young wife insane so he can have free reign of the house that hides the precious jewels; however, a Scotland Yard detective takes a close interest in the couple. Under Cukorís tutelage, Angela Lansbury (of television's MURDER, SHE WROTE) made her debut as a flirtatious maid in a role that jump-started her career and landed her an Academy Award nomination at the tender age of 18. GASLIGHT is a classic, compelling film that is masterfully acted and directed.
