Lessons gained from "Gaslight"
1. Try to know someone longer than two weeks before accepting his marriage proposal.
2. Nosy neighbors are extremely helpful when you're wed to a potential killer.
3. Female intuition is a bit of a myth.
4. Moving into the house where your aunt/surrogate mother was murdered is probably not a superb idea for peace of mind.
I adore this 1944 film with Ingrid Bergman and Charles Boyer. It's got everything you need. Period costumed England. Bobbies. A really creepy bad guy to take advantage of the faithful woman, a good guy to save the day. Angela Lansbury as a catty maid.
