"As Dorian's victim, Angela Lansbury is gorgeous and touching in this fastidious Oscar Wilde adaptation." -- Grade: B
New York Times - 10/20/2008
"The luxurious period look of DORIAN GRAY earned it an Academy Award nomination for art direction and an Oscar for the veteran cinematographer Harry Stradling Sr."
This chilly adaptation of Oscar Wilde's novel stars Hurd Hatfield as Dorian Gray, a handsome young Victorian gentleman who remains eternally young while a portrait of him grows old and bears the ugly scars of his vile undertakings. The otherwise black-and-white horror film is notable for its lavish Technicolor finale--perhaps helping it score its Academy Award for cinematography. Angela Lansbury gained an Oscar nod for her role as an innocent singer whom Dorian corrupts.
