Film - Gaslight

A famous diva is killed in her own home and the valuable collection of jewelry she owned has gone missing. Ingrid Bergman, the woman’s niece, finds the body. Traumatized, she is sent away to school, and eventually trains to become a singer. After meeting and marrying Charles Boyer, the couple return to London. At his insistence, they live in the same house that had been the murder scene so many years ago. The once kind husband becomes cold and cruel. Strange occurrences begin to happen on a daily basis. His wife mentally unravels until paranoia takes over. Boyer convinces Bergman she is indeed crazy and entirely separates her from the outside world. When Joseph Cotten, a detective, has a chance to speak with Bergman alone she tells him of the many bizarre events. He believes something suspicious has been going on and decides to investigate. Barbara Steffek-Hill presents a series of classic and contemporary films from her personal favorites.
