Quotes from

Dorian Gray: If only it was the picture who was to grow old, and I remain young. There's nothing in the world I wouldn't give for that. Yes, I would give even my soul for it.


Lord Henry Wotton: I like persons better than principles and persons with no principles better than anything at all.


Sir Thomas: You must admit that women give men the very gold of their lives.
Lord Henry Wotton: But they invariably want it back in such small change. Women, as a witty Frenchman put it, inspire us with the desire to do masterpieces and always prevent us from carrying them out.

Facts about

Ivan Le Lorraine Albright's famous painting of the decayed Dorian Gray - which took approximately one year to complete - is now owned by the Art Institute of Chicago. Albright's twin brother Malvin Albright, better known as a sculptor, was also commissioned to create paintings for the film, although his work went unused.
Final film of Charles K. French.
