​ OSCAR WINNER: Best Actress - Ingrid Bergman Best Art Direction Beautiful and trusting, Paula Anton is slowly tormented by mysterious happenings in her luxurious Victorian home. The suspect is her devoted husband. But viewing the world through the dim glow of the gaslight, it is difficult to tell what is real and what is imagined. Nominated for seven Academy Awards, this 1944 psychological thriller stars Ingrid Bergman as a newlywed unaware that her seemingly charming husband, Charles Boyer, is a crazed murderer. After they move into her family's Victorian mansion, he schemes to drive her insane while he searches for a hidden cache of rubies. Chilling and suspenseful, and directed by the legendary George Cukor, Gaslight was nominated for "Best Picture," while Bergman earned a well-deserved Oscar for her performance as the vulnerable heroine. Boyer and a teenage Angela Lansbury also each received nominations.
