Picture of Dorian Gray (1973)



Staring Shane Briant and featuring Kim Richards

In late Victorian London, a beautiful young man is given a portrait of himself by an admiring artist. Soon after this he treats a young woman cruelly and then notices that his portrait seems to look meaner than it used to. Eventually he cannot endure the portrait and hides it in the attic. As the years pass, he becomes ever more unscrupulous and dissolute. His friends remark how he is as handsome as ever and never seems to age. But up in the attic his picture becomes uglier and uglier.

    The   opening music makes me wonder if there will be a cousin-vampire in the basement, a maid, practicing black magic in the kitchen , another cousin- ghost-werewolf in the abandoned wing, an assembled manmade monster in the root cellar under the control of a warlock that somehow avoided in noose in 1692 and a psychiatrist trying to cure them all.

    I think that there is a message in The Picture of Dorian Gray.  I can't think of anyone who really wants to be old and carry the burden of their mistakes.  The consequence is made clear at the end  of all the versions!  At birth we all begin the process of losing our hair, teeth, sight, smooth unwrinkled skin and straight spines.  We become monsters!!!

    The original had a religious bent of salvation.  That is what was intended.  This is just secular nonsense.

    I could have sworn that if he looked at the painting he transformed into whatever the painting looks like at the time. He locked it up so that he wouldn't be able to look at it. that's what I remember from the book.

    Wow! I was finding all the creative license with the story a bit tepid, but the ending really redeemed this version. I still prefer the novel, and perhaps certain aspects of the 1945 film, but this production really drove home Dorian's struggle with morality and demonstrates his pathetic and fruitless desire for redemption. I can't help but shed a tear for the Divine Oscar.

    I like this version better than the bbc one- this one is darker and more "adult"

    I personally prefer the 1945 version over this one. I remember being slightly spooked after watching it. genuinely like it was a horror movie.
