GASLIGHTING AND TORMENTING: FROM HITCH TO THE LOVE WITCH
Aero Theatre, Santa Monica


In the 1944 classic GASLIGHT, duplicitous Charles Boyer torments wife Ingrid Bergman, hoping to drive her into an insane asylum. The film brought Bergman her first Oscar and inspired the term “gaslighting” to describe cruel, deceptive mind games played by one spouse upon the other (with rare exceptions - such as LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN - it’s generally the husband responsible for the dirty deeds). Anna Biller's THE LOVE WITCH is the most recent episode of cinematic gaslighting, but Alfred Hitchcock lent to the genre - so we've included his work in the series too with DIAL M FOR MURDER (in digital 3D) and SHADOW OF A DOUBT  in honor of Hitchcock Appreciation Day. "Feud" 'it girl,' Joan Crawford in SUDDEN FEAR is not to be missed, and we couldn't leave out DIABOLIQUE and ROSEMARY'S BABY!
