LAKEPORT, Calif. – The 1944 melodrama, “Gaslight,” starring Ingrid Bergman, Charles Boyer and Joseph Cotten, screens at the Soper Reese Theatre on Tuesday, Nov. 26, at 1 and 6 p.m.

Entry to the film is by donation.

When top-flight stars join forces in performing a beautifully directed psychological thriller, the effect is strong, so strong that this film led to the coinage of a new word: "gaslighting," which describes behavior that seeks to manipulate other people’s fears in order to undermine their sanity.

Filmed in black and white, set in foggy Victorian England, and directed by George Cukor, this dark, Hitchcock-like mystery brought Bergman her first Best Actress Oscar.

It also features an 18-year-old Angela Lansbury in her first film role.

The movie is sponsored by Tomkins Tax Consultants. Rated PG. Run time is 1 hour and 54 minutes.

The Soper Reese Theatre is located at 275 S. Main St., Lakeport, 707-263-0577,
