PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY

Dir. Albert Lewin (USA, 1945) 110 mins


The “Picture of Dorian Gray” is an adaptation of Oscar Wilde's 1891 novel, and became the classic tale of vanity. A handsome young Victorian gentleman, Dorian Gray, has his portrait made by a close friend who is obsessed with his beauty. Though at first Gray is an innocent young man, under the influence of amoral Lord Henry Wotton, he embarks on a journey of vile undertakings. As the years pass, Dorian Gray does not age, but evidence of Grays sins are apparent in his portrait, which grows uglier with each transgression. He keeps it safely hidden in the attic. But his mysterious behavior and ageless appearance begin to attract suspicion.
