A Double Life

A Double Life (Cukor 1947) stars Ronald Coleman as Anthony John, a stage actor consumed by the role of Othello who slips into madness. Shelley Winters plays Pat Kroll, a slatternly waitress he comes to believe is Desdemona. This is a great story about doubling and division, a kind of Shakespearean noir.
