Tonight my local PBS station showed the classic GASLIGHT. Starring Ingrid Bergman and Charles Boyer and made in 1944, it is also the first movie made by Angela Lansbury. Back then Jessica Fletcher played bad girls. It’s been many years since I saw it and I was anxious to see it again.
The movie felt disjointed at first but got better. I do have a problem with Joseph Cotton as an English detective. However the movie was made over 60 years ago and it’s not like they could hire someone to come over from England to play the part.
In the end though the crime was solved, the murder was bought to justice and the heroine could s tart her life over again, maybe with a new man. It doesn’t get better than that.
