FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Jack Benny did a spoof of the movie Gaslight on his TV show in the 1950s. Called "Autolight," Benny spoofed the Boyer character while Barbara Stanwyck performed a comic burlesque of the original Bergman part. MGM brought an infringement suit against Benny, but the comedian's lawyers argued the skit was in the realm of parody and therefore not a copyright violation. The suit was dropped.

    • Louis B. Mayer determined to eliminate the competition for what was expected to be one of the studio's biggest hits of the year, ordered all prints of the 1940 British version of Angel Street with Diana Wynyard purchased and destroyed. Prints, however, did survive and the film turned up again.

    • "Gaslight" 1944 retitled film version of Angel Street starred Ingrid Bergman and Charles Boyer.
