Synopsis:
Based on Patrick Hamilton's celebrated stage play, Thorold Dickinson's 'Gaslight' is a narrowing and claustrophobic study of murder, abuse and lust in Victorian London. By turns charming and cruel, Anton Walbrook excels as the sadistic husband who attempts to drive his wife (Diana Wynyard) mad to prevent her from disclosing his dark past.
