GASLIGHT, 1944, MGM (Warner Classics), 114 min. Director George Cukor’s classic Victorian thriller stars the radiant Ingrid Bergman (in an Oscar-winning performance) as an innocent wife driven to near-insanity by her apparently-loving husband (Charles Boyer), in order to claim a fortune in jewelry. A terrific supporting cast includes Joseph Cotten, Angela Lansbury (in her first feature role), and Terry Moore.

HIGH SOCIETY, 1956, MGM (Warner Classics), 107 min. Dir. Charles Walters. Effervescent, star-studded remake of THE PHILADELPHIA STORY with Bing Crosby, Grace Kelly and Frank Sinatra as the romantic triangle who croon their way through one of Cole Porter’s finest scores. Co-starring Celeste Holm, Louis Armstrong. Discussion between films with editor Ralph Winters, actress Terry Moore (GASLIGHT) and film historian Tony Slide (schedules permitting).
