Movie Info

After the death of her famous opera-singing aunt, Paula (Ingrid Bergman) is sent to study in Italy to become a great opera singer as well. While there, she falls in love with the charming Gregory Anton (Charles Boyer). The two return to London, and Paula begins to notice strange goings-on: missing pictures, strange footsteps in the night and gaslights that dim without being touched. As she fights to retain her sanity, her new husband's intentions come into question.

    Charles Boyer is deliciously creepy and evil in this psychological thriller from 1944, and Ingrid Bergman plays the part of his young wife well, slowly tricked into believing she's losing her mind. Joseph Cotten is her knight in shining armor, and Angela Lansbury makes the most of a small part in her very first film role at the age of 18, as the somewhat flirtatious young maid in the house, and we wonder if she has a role in the scheming that's going on. I loved how Director George Cukor made the film as claustrophobic as Bergman feels herself, by keeping most of the scenes indoor amidst dark lighting and shadows, and outdoor scenes enveloped in London fog. It's quite atmospheric. The movie seems to lack tension towards the middle, when everyone knows what's going on - what Boyer is doing and how he is doing it (which is a bit of a weakness) - but it ends very well, with some scenes that may have you on the edge of your seat.

    Bergman won an Oscar for her role but it was Boyer who should have won many for his meticulous performance as the mysterious husband (he was nominated, though) in this taut thriller whose tension is increased by an exemplary art direction and mise-en-scène.

    A nicely drawn out suspense that still thrills. The horrible subtext works well with Bergman and Boyer. Likely inspired later Hitchcock works.

    If it weren't for its cinematography and the performances of Ingrid Bergman and Charles Boyer, "Gaslight" would be another run-of-the-mill noir. George Cukor isn't any Hitchcock, but he directs suspense quite well, and Joseph Cotten proves himself to be one of the most underappreciated actors of all time with another one of his classically understated performance.
