Featured Movie-related item: Gaslight (1944)

The 92nd Academy Awards are just around the corner! They’ll be televised on Sunday, February 9!

This is our second installment of the year on Oscar-winning movies. Seventy-five years ago, Gaslight (Japanese translation – ガス燈), starring Ingrid Bergman and Charles Boyer, was nominated for ten awards and walked away with two wins: Best Art Direction and Best Actress in a Leading Role for Bergman.

The movie is based on the play, Angle Street, by the English writer, Patrick Hamilton. There have been multiple stage and screen adaptations of the play.

There are two books in the Prange Collection about this movie: Gaslight Steal Album (Prange Call No. PN-0228), which includes stills from the film, and ガス燈 (Prange Call No. PN-0238), which includes the movie script in English and Japanese. Sample pages from both books are below.
