(1944) fits nicely into this category! It's a gothic Hollywood thriller
about a young heiress (Ingrid Bergman) who appears to be
systematically driven insane by her husband (Charles Boyer).
The legendary George Cukor directs this adaptation of Patrick
Hamilton's stage play. Bergman is perfectly transcendent in this
Academy Award winning performance and Charles Boyer is
deliciously creepy as her pianist husband. The cast also includes
Joseph Cotten and the debut of a very young Angela Lansbury. Be
prepared for a great screenplay and acting by Bergman that is way
ahead of her time. So put on your woolly socks, make some popcorn,
turn the lights down low and be prepared for an attack of the willies!
And if you adore Ingrid Bergman as much as I do, I know you will
enjoy this little clip by Patricia Clarkson for TCM.
