"Strange Illusion" at Lightbox Film Center

Date/Time

May 25, 2019
08:00 PM until 09:30 PM

Description

A young man has a recurring dream in which an uncanny gentleman attempts to woo his mother, after seeing his dad die mysteriously in a car accident in the same dream. Paul Cartwright consults a psychiatrist, who is also a friend, and realizes that his dream is coming true, especially after receiving a posthumous letter from his father about his mother’s suitor. The plot of Edgar G. Ulmer’s Strange Illusion may be strictly Poverty Row, but it also steals admirably from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, with a major dose of post-World War II interest in Sigmund Freud. This screening is part of Lightbox Film Center’s new series, Down & Dirty in Gower Gulch, a retrospective of low-budget “Poverty Row” films from the ‘30s and ‘40s restored by UCLA Film & Television Archives.
