Film synopsis: Gaslight is a 1940 British film directed by Thorold Dickinson, which stars Anton Walbrook and Diana Wynyard, and features Frank Pettingell. The film adheres more closely to the original play upon which it is based - Patrick Hamilton's 'Gas Light' (1938) - than the better-known 1944 MGM adaptation. The psychological term 'gaslighting', which describes a form of psychological abuse in which the victim is gradually manipulated into doubting his or her own reality, originated from the play and its two film adaptations.
