DESCRIPTION:


George Cukor's perfectly mannered direction confidently guides this brooding and cynical film noir that is considered by many the highlight of actor Ronald Colman's great career. A Double Life explores the dangers of blurring the line between reality and illusion in this examination of the schizoid personality of a talented stage actor who begins to confuse his roles with his life. Colman gives a magnificent and mesmerizing performance as veteran thespian Anthony John, who begins to mentally derail during a run of Othello. John's courtly manners and reputation have a winning charm that endear him to both audiences and women, including his ex-wife, Brita (Signe Hasso), who acts opposite him in the play, and Pat (Shelley Winters), a sexy waitress he befriends. Colman's performance earned him a Best Actor Academy Awardr and Golden Glober. Mikl¢s R¢zsa also won an Oscarr for his vivacious score and the film's director and screenwriters, Ruth Gordon and Garson Kanin all received Oscarr nominations. Edmond O'Brien co-stars as the company's producer who's secretly in love with Brita.
