I love the curiosity it brought and of course the mystery! and Les Fleurs du mal.. and it made me wish I could speak French!
Angela Lansbury is so touching in this film. It is a shame that with so much evidence of her abilities, And two Oscar nominations in two years, MGM limited her to supporting roles.
Dorian doesn't fit the description of the book, but in the context of the movie it works well. Something caught me in this and stuck. Call me crazy but I think it's perfect.
Hurd Hatfield was a miscast, but luckily that didn't hurt the film overall.
Something was wrong with this film.I guess bringin' in screen such an excellent and authentic novel by Wilde is really a tough work.Well this film never really catch me in any monent.I found it really mediocre considering the admirable cast and the storyline full of perspectives
George Sanders is the PERFECT Lord Henry. I can't imagine anyone more fit for the role.
Meanwhile, I have no idea why so many film makers are hell-bent on portraying Dorian as Tall, Dark, & Handsome. He's a fair, young Adonis. I usually don't complain about small details like this, but I think it's important for any good adaptation of Dorian Gray.
