George Cukor, the Hungarian who liked to approach his work as if he had European ancestry, takes advantage of the added gunshot of cinema – complexifying, with a noir aroma, this game of mirrors called A Double Life (1947). Ronald Colman, the British film actor who began in theatre and here plays Othello, forgets to take off the mask when he leaves the stage; and when he is on stage, the mask is so attached to his skin that he forgets the limit between life and death.

Not anybody’s strongest work, but it brings out an expressionist side in Cukor that he’s not supposed to have and which he basically denied having (“I’m interested in the actor’s faces.”) Some of that stuff is really interesting.

Much like Charles Laughton and Laurence Olivier—Cukor’s first choice for the role of John—would do in the Age of Brando yet to come, A Double Life gooses Stanislavski with an over-the-topness that might, at the root, be deadly serious. Finding the role within your own psychology, A Double Life argues, isn’t acting. It’s suicide, and possibly murder as well.
