Chicago Film Club: Screening of “Gaslight” with discussion afterward
June 3 @ 6:45 pm - 8:45 pm
Gaslight (1944) is a historical drama with noir overtones. It features beautiful black and white photography and an Academy Award winning performance from Ingrid Bergman as Paula, the wife of a man (Charles Boyer) who may be trying to drive her crazy. The film is tautly directed by George Cukor who guided a 16-year-old Angela Lansbury to an Oscar nomination as Best Supporting Actress in her film debut.
