  • Description

    DVD release of this newly remastered version of Thorold Dickinson’s dark and menacing psychological 1940 classic.

    Based on Patrick Hamilton's celebrated stage play, Gaslight is a harrowing and claustrophobic film about domestic fear. Anton Walbrook (The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp, The Red Shoes) stars as the terrifying husband who puts the sanity of his fragile and tortured wife (Diana Wynyard) under siege.

    The success of Gaslight on stage and film encouraged Hollywood studio MGM to buy the remake rights in the early 1940s, with a clause insisting that all existing prints of Dickinson's British version be destroyed. Unseen for many decades, this definitive version has been digitally restored by the BFI.

    • Spanish A B C (Thorold Dickinson and Sidney Cole, 1938, 20 mins)
