Description
In Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray, a handsome young aristocrat descends into evil and debauchery under the influence of an intelligent friend with a cynical outlook on life. The corruption of Dorian Gray's soul is represented by a portrait of him that grows uglier at the years pass, even as Dorian himself retains his perfect beauty. This 1945 film adaptation, shot mostly in black and white but with occasional bursts of Technicolor, is remarkably faithful to Wilde's novel. It won the Oscar for Best Cinematography. Starring George Sanders, Hurd Hatfield, Donna Reed, Angela Lansbury, and Peter Lawford.
