"I sent my soul through the invisible,
Some letter of that after-life to spell;
And by and by my soul returned to me,
And answered, `I myself an Heaven and Hell'"
- "The Rubaiyat" Omar Khayyam

Dorian Gray, with the help of Lord Henry and Basel's painting, realizes that youthful looks are everything and proceeds (in the presence of an ancient Egyptian cat god) to sell his soul in exchange for letting the portrait grow old while he stayed youthful looking.

Although the story was slightly modified for the sake of the media and the long diatribes were cut out, Albert Lewin - Director / Writer (screenplay) left in the most important dialogs directly quoted from the book.

The movie itself is in black and white with some color plates of the portrait included.

One of the biggest surprises is that Angela Lansbury plays Dorian's love, Sibyl Vane; she looks like a little china doll as she sings "Little Yellow Bird". Later Lansbury will repeat this performance in the series "Murder She Wrote".

Even though Hurd Hatfield plays Dorian, George Sanders with his snotty sounding voice steals the show as Lord Henry Wotton, Dorian's amoral sounding friend.

HASH(0x9cd0e24c) étoiles sur 5 Hitchcockesque 14 mai 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur
This film belies itself in that it's presence seems very innocent and moral on the outside, afterall it's a vintage MGM movie set in the aristocratic culture of Victorian England. However, take these layers away and you have a very creepy and horrific movie. This reminded me of Hitchcock film due to the light atmosphere and surroundings with the deep undertones of the dark side of human nature.
Hurd Hatfield gives a fine and creepy performance as the indifferent and evil Dorian Gray. I found his face very mask-like and cold as I would imagine a person without a conscience to be. He harms and destroys people with the grace of the finest Victorian gentleman. He has sold his soul to the devil to remain eternally young and beautiful, as his painted portrait takes on what he has truly become.
I have seen the actual demonic portrait of Dorian Gray at the Art Institute of Chicago where it resides. It's even more horrific in person and it adds dimension to this movie, and truly shows the destortion of pure evil. This is exemplary in the fact that even though this movie is in black and white, when the painting is in the film frame, it is in technicolor. I think that even though Oscar Wilde has produced a wonderful literary piece, some credit needs to go to the artist, Ivan Albright, for producing such a stark visual reminder of how horrible the dark side of human nature can be.

HASH(0x9cd22f00) étoiles sur 5 An Exceptional Film Adaptation of the Classic Novel 21 septembre 2006
Par C. Middleton - Publié sur
This 1945 film adaptation of Oscar Wilde's classic novella is more that likely the best adaptation one will ever see. This may seem to be a big statement, but Albert Lewin's direction along with Harry Stradling Sr.'s Oscar winning Cinematography for 1946, appears almost flawless when comparing the classic novel with the film.

George Sanders as Lord Henry Wotton should have won the Oscar that year for best supporting actor because his performance is faultless, brimming with style and wit. To my mind, he is Oscar Wilde, snobbish, intelligent and uses his tongue as a sword, cutting anyone down to size who cares to challenge him. Some of his lines from the screenplay are pure gems that Wilde is so famous for:

"I like persons better than principles and persons with no principles better than anything at all."

"Forgive me for the intelligence of my argument; I'd forgotten you were a Member of Parliament."

Dorian Gray (Hurd Hatfield) is a slightly effeminent aristocrat who makes a Faustian pact to gain eternal youth. Gray's portrait, however, reveals Gray's soul, as he plunges himself into the dark and criminal world of 19th century London. Gray is selfish, uncaring, and arrogant and portrays the true 19th century hedonist; a Wildean character in the truest sense, as the then infamous novel, during the famous Wilde trials, was partly responsible for his four year imprisonment. This was the time when homosexuality was illegal, and Oscar Wilde became a scapegoat for the English's notorious hypocrisy.

Angela Lansbury as Sibyl Vane won her the Golden Globe and an Oscar nomination. She is beautiful in this role, touching and almost pitiful as her innocence is corrupted by the cruel Dorian Gray.

What is curious about this film is that it is black and white; however, the actual portrait of Dorian is shown four times through the film in colour.

This was the only novel Oscar Wilde ever wrote, as he was predominantly a playwright and poet. The book also is a comment on the "Art for Art's Sake" sensibility and a philosophical commentary on the Aesthetic movement. The film also touches on these points, albeit on a superficial level.

This is a wonderful film and one hopes that in the near future it will be available on DVD.

Absolutely excellent.

HASH(0x9cd3cb64) étoiles sur 5 A wonderful film that needs a DVD version 26 octobre 2001
Par S. P. Oconnell - Publié sur
Format: Cassette vidéo
This is a wonderful film, filled with atmosphere and wonderful actors. George Sanders is outstanding as Lord Henry Wotton. Never have I heard someone make evil sound so appealing. You can just feel the blackness going into Dorian's heart as he listens to him speak his honeyed words.
Hurd Hatfield as Dorian Gray was the perfect choice. He has the look of someone who has been sheltered from the world. He looked untouched as he committed the evil the sealed his fate. Sanders and Hatfield were perfect together.
Angela Lansbury as Sibyl Vane has a short put very important role, you can hear her heart break when Dorian leaves her.
It is a slow and somber ride down the path to evil but that makes it so much more real.
Wonderful sets, great lighting, perfect casting, this film calls out for a DVD version stuffed with extras.
It should be done now while we still have some of the actors and crew from the film still alive.
Great film for a lonely night when the shadows are long and dark.

HASH(0x9cd3c5dc) étoiles sur 5 New DVD release with commentary is announced 15 juin 2008
Par calvinnme - Publié sur
Format: DVD
The classic moral/horror tale is to finally be released on DVD by Warner Home Video. The story has a Jekyl and Hyde type quality with Dorian making a wish after his portrait is painted that he will remain eternally young while his portrait grows old. George Sanders plays Dorian's "friend", Lord Henry Wotton, who tempts Dorian to live a life of debauchery. Sanders was born to plays such roles. Dorian follows Wotton's advice with gusto, living a rather secret second life. All the while the portrait grows hideous in appearance, mirroring the state of Dorian's soul, while Dorian retains his youthful angelic appearance. It is a single DVD release with the following extra features:

Cast commentaries by Angela Lansbury and film historian/screenwriter Steve Haberman
1945 MGM short Stairway To Light
1945 MGM cartoon Quiet Please!
Theatrical trailer

I am particularly interested to hear Lansbury's comments on the film. She and Hurd Hatfield, the actor who portrayed Dorian, remained friends from the time they made this film until Hatfield's death in 1998. I am sure she will have many interesting things to say.

HASH(0x9cd41834) étoiles sur 5 Oscar Wilde's Suspense Classic "The Picture of Dorian Gray" 12 septembre 2007
Par Manderly - Publié sur
An Aristocratic man, innocently young and handsome Dorian Gray (Hurd Hatfield) becomes enchanted by an Egyptian goddess ("Bastet" the cat god) that supposedly has the power to grant longevity and youth. Dorian has an ideal and decides to have his portrait painted by a close friend. Soon after, under the influence of amoral Lord Henry Wotton (George Sanders), he jilts his fiancée (a young and very beautiful Angela Lansbury), leading to her suicide. This is the start of a life of increasing debauchery! Gray soon realizes that the outward signs of his sinister new persona are apparent only in the portrait. Eventually the picture, secreted in his childhood playroom, becomes almost hideous to behold. But Gray still has one pure love - Gladys (Donna Reed), the niece of the original painter. Will Gladys' love be strong enough to save Dorian from the curses and immorality that has plagued his life? Is there any purity left in Dorian's heart to give him any chance of redemption or hope of salvation? And how much has the portrait of Dorian Gray actually changed after all of these years of absorbing Dorian's secrets, sins, and lies? It is all exposed in the grand finale as the door to the playroom is finally opened and the portrait of the true Dorian Gray unmasks his youth and beauty!

Oscar Wilde's immortal classic "The Picture of Dorian Gray" is still long overdue for a much-needed DVD release. This viewing of the classic was made possible by a good friend who loaned me his VHS copy, of which I'm most grateful! The entire cast is flawless in this 1945 adaptation of Wilde's novella! George Sanders is phenomenal as Lord Harry Wotton and this is his second best performance, the first being his mastering the screen as acid tongued theatre critic Addison Dewitt in the Bette Davis vs. Anne Baxter classic "All About Eve" (1950). This is in the only film that I recall seeing Hurd Hatfield starring in. With his strong aristocratic good looks and effeminent acting skills, I can't imagine why he wasn't used in more films of the time. Angela Lansbury is so lovely and young here and brings an innocent beauty to the screen as Dorian's fiancée, Sybil Vane. I have long been a fan of this classic film and highly recommend it to all fans of classic cinema! For those who have yet to see "The Picture of Dorian Gray," and for those who have seen it and would like to add it to their movie libraries, here's hoping that a DVD release is in the very near future!

**UPDATE!!** "The Picture of Dorain Gray" (1945) is coming to DVD OCTOBER 7, 2008!! Hooray!!!!!!!
