(1936, 85 minutes)
Director: Alexander Korda
Charles Laughton stars in this moving, elegant biopic about the Dutch painter. Shot in black and white but with close Rembrandtesque attention to light, this film begins when Rembrandt's reputation was at its height, and tracks his quiet descent into loneliness and isolated self-expression. Also starring Gertrude Lawrence as his wife Geertje Dirx and Elsa Lanchester as his later-in-life lover Hendrickje Stoffels. This screening coincides with the exhibition Rembrandt's World: Dutch Drawings from the Clement C. Moore Collection.
