The Picture of Dorian Gray
In Victorian England, aristocrat Dorian Gray (Hurd Hatfield) becomes increasingly hedonistic and vain. When his portrait is painted, Gray makes a Faustian bargain: The picture will age while he stays young and handsome -- an evil pact that leads to murder. This classic drama based on a novel by Oscar Wilde won an Oscar for Best Cinematography, and Angela Lansbury took home a Golden Globe for her role as Gray's jilted lover.
