Directed by
George Cukor

Powerful drama in which a renowned stage actor becomes increasingly unable to differentiate between his stage roles and real life. Usually charming and well-mannered, he begins to fly into murderous rages at the slightest provocation - an affliction that leads to tragedy when he is cast as Othello in a Broadway show. Ronald Colman won an Oscar for his portrayal of this Jekyll-and-Hyde character.
