A Double Life
Actor Anthony John is known for going deeply into the roles he plays. When his characters are pleasant and fun, that is what he becomes, but then they are dark and heavy-hearted, so is he. His former wife Brita got tired of living with his interchangeable moods and divorced him, but the two kept working together. When Anthony takes on the role of Othello, he is soon overwhelmed by the murderous jealousy of the character and risks losing himself in the darkness. Ronald Colman won an Oscar for the starring role of Anthony, and George Cukor was also nominated for Best director.
