A Double Life

Wednesday, December 14, 2022, 7:30 p.m., Dryden Theatre

(George Cukor, US 1947, 104 min., 35mm)

Ronald Colman won an Oscar for his portrayal of a stage actor who can no longer differentiate between the real and the theatrical. Assuming the role of Othello on stage, his off-stage life begins to take on eerie similarities, and murderous motivations come to light when Colman discovers that jealousy is the key to his character. A fascinating study of the duality of performance and the burgeoning “method” movement, the film is complemented by an amazing Miklos Rozsa score.
