Gaslight and Ingrid Bergman

I have recently found a bit of a passion for Victorian Era black and white movies and have set about acquiring some to watch.

This is such a great film. It stars the very lovely Ingrid Bergman and

Made in 1944. the film was nominated for seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Screenplay; it also won the Academy Award for Best Actress and Best Production Design.

It is a beautiful looking film and the monochrome just adds to the depth of it.

The plot revolves around a  newly married couple, Paula and Gregory. Paula moved to Italy as a youngster after her Aunt was murdered in London, Gregory wants to move back to London to live in the house left in Auntie’s will.

Is the suave Gregory everything he claims to be?

Or is there an ulterior motive for wanting to gain access to the house?

Is Paula going insane…?

A great film and well worth a watch.
