    • TRIVIA (3)

      • Gaslight, 1944 film version of the play "Angel Street" starred Ingrid Bergman, who won an OSCAR for her performance and Charles Boyer.

      • 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 1939 British version purchased and destroyed. Prints, however, did survive, and the film turned up again.

      • Jack Benny did a spoof of the movie 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.
