A Double Life

Director: George Cukor
Year Released: 1947
Rating: 2.5

An actor (Ronald Colman) plays Othello and slowly goes insane, confusing his real identity and that of the character he's playing. Intriguing concept is played with a heavy hand by Cukor (whose direction is obvious and overstated), and the result is barely plausible, though Colman sure does try (he won his Oscar for it, though I'd be inclined to argue he deserved it for Lost Horizon as well). Never seen any of the Method actors loose their minds, although Brando's getting there....
