Years change, handsome Dorian Gray does not. He remains youthful looking. But a portrait of him tells another story. It changes with the years, revealing the horrific effects of Gray’s life of debauchery and evil.
From Oscar Wilde’s novel and filmed in a rapturous, deep-focus style that earned a "Best Cinematography" Academy Award, this chilling tale remains unchanging in its power to entertain.
Hurd Hatfield plays the rakish title character in this morality tale, while George Sanders is a Wilde-like dandy who leads Gray to perdition. "Best Supporting Actress" nominee Angela Lansbury is a music hall thrush victimized by Gray, while Donna Reed and Peter Lawford also give powerful performances. Every picture tells a story. But none tells as haunting a tale of terror like The Picture of Dorian Gray.
