A compact story that is perfectly crafted into a fascinating film.
Very entertaining and the performances are compelling, especially that of Bella.
A unique and risqué thriller for its time. A neat little macabre treat.
As unique to stylised British cinema as The Third Man.
s a timid woman going insane or is her husband trying to make her think she is? This moody old school thriller works because the actors are so good at conveying evil cloaked in British geniality
Cukor's later Hollywood version tries to make Patrick Hamilton's celebrated stage play a whodunnit. Dickinson's earlier British version wisely concentrates on the psychological cruelty and chauvinism. Marvellously acted and photographed, and surprisingly short. Walbrook offers another fine study in buttoned-up insanity.
Good but pales next to the 1944 version

wow.....thrillling....classics....man i have just seen this movie 4 the 1st time n think that this is a great movie 2 watch......its got a good cast of actors/actressess throughout this movie....i think that anton walbrook (.R.I.P.), diana wynyard (.R.I.P.), frank pettingell (.R.I.P.), cathleen cordell (.R.I.P.), robert newton (.R.I.P.), play good roles/parts throughout this movie.....i think that the director of this drama/mystery/suspense/classics movie had done a great job of directing this movie because you never know what 2 expect throughout this movie.....i think that this is such a classics movie 2 watch, its got a fantastic cast throughout this movie......i think that this is such a really well written/acted/directed movie 2 watch......
The psychological term gaslighting, which describes a form of psychological abuse in which the victim is gradually manipulated into doubting his or her own reality, originated from the play and its two film adaptations
Encouraged by the success of the play and film, MGM bought the remake rights, but with a clause insisting that all existing prints of Dickinson's version be destroyed, even to the point of trying to destroy the negative, so that it would not compete with their more highly publicized 1944 film starring Charles Boyer, Ingrid Bergman, and Joseph Cotten.
Time Out wrote, "Nothing like as lavish as the later MGM version ... But in its own small-scale way a superior film by far. Lurking menace hangs in the air like a fog, the atmosphere is electric, and Wynyard suffers exquisitely as she struggles to keep dementia at bay. It's hardly surprising that MGM tried to destroy the negative of this version when they made their own five years later."
the film adheres more closely to the original play upon which it is based - Patrick Hamilton's Gas Light (1938) - than the better-known 1944 MGM adaptation. The play had been shown on Broadway as Angel Street, so when the film was released in the United States it was given the same name. According to the TCM database, it has also been released in the UK as A Strange Case of Murder.
i think that both Anton Walbrook as Paul Mallen, Diana Wynyard as Bella Mallen, were absolutley fantastic throughout this movie in the lead roles of the married couple throughout this movie....man this is such a fantastic thrilling movie 2 watch, its got a great cast throughout this movie......its got a good soundtrack throughout this movie.....man this is such a thrilling movie 2 watch, its got a great cast throughout this movie....man this is such a fantastic movie 2 watch....it is so so so fantastic movie 2 watch with a great cast throughout this movie.....
Good performances, but I prefer the 1944 version as it is more suspenseful.
