What deception is going on in the house on Angel Street?
Did you know that the term “gaslighting” was coined from this 1938 drama? The original title in Britain was “Gas Light” and renamed “Angel Street” in the US.
In 1939, Patrick Hamilton’s thriller ”Gas Light” opened in London, and in 1941 the same play, about a fiendish husband trying to drive his wife insane, opened in New York under the title ”Angel Street.” It was later made into a Hollywood movie, again titled ”Gaslight.”
Something is wrong between the Manningtons. What is it? Who can help? Is Mr. Mannington deliberately trying to drive his wife crazy? Is he gaslighting her?
