Director: Mark Robson
(1946, 79 minutes)
In 1760s London, an actress campaigns to reform a horrific hospital for the insane, but instead finds herself committed to the institution by the corrupt head of the asylum. Starring Boris Karloff and Anna Lee, Bedlam was the last in a series of stylish horror films produced by Val Lewton for RKO Radio Pictures. The film was inspired by William Hogarth’s A Rake’s Progress, and Hogarth was given a writing credit.
The exhibition Hogarth: Cruelty and Humor will be open for program attendees.
