The Importance of Being Earnest / The Picture of Dorian Gray

1976 NR

Writer Oscar Wilde's sparkling wit is on full display in this two-play collection from the long-running BBC series "Play of the Month." In "The Importance of Being Earnest," two bachelors (Michael Jayston and Julian Holloway) discover that a little deception goes a long way when it comes to romance. "The Picture of Dorian Grey" stars John Gielgud, Jeremy Brett and Peter Firth as the decadent title character whose portrait turns into a fountain of youth.
