About the Film
Is the sole purpose of art to create beauty? When Dorian Gray, a handsome, young Victorian gentleman obsessed with the fleeting transience of his own beauty, becomes disturbed by a portrait that seems to capture too much of his soul, he makes a dark pact: He will remain forever young, while the age, disease and decay that should affect his body ravage The Picture of Dorian Gray. Over the years, Dorian Gray (Hurd Hatfield) revels in every imaginable pleasure and experience--altruistic, decadent or evil--while somehow maintaining his youthful beauty even as the painting, locked away in a dark room, reveals an increasingly decaying, corrupt, aging visage. Although Gray may be able to avoid the ravages of time, he cannot escape the wrath of people he wrongs over the years. And when his one lethal weakness is finally discovered, Gray pays for all his evils in a shocking climax.
look foward to film of the week , but can it get worst than this ... 1945 your taking the pi??
A classic gothic horror
A real treat for film fans. This is the definitive version of Wilde's story, with brilliant performances from the cast including Hurd Hatfield (Dorian Gray), George Sanders (Henry Wooton) and a young Angela Lansbury as the doomed lover Sibyl Vane. Worth buying at this fantastic price.
An old classic
Sometimes less really is more, and this version is definitely 10 fold of the crap remake!!
