Movies Private Worlds (Paramount 1935, Charles Boyer, Claudette Colbert) Published 1 week ago on February 8, 2019 Charles Boyer stars as the new superintendent of a progressive mental hospital. His apparent coldness first arouses resentment among the doctors on the staff, but his reasonable, basically kind nature eventually wins them over, and one of the doctors (Claudette Colbert) falls in love with him. Meanwhile, another doctor’s pregnant wife (Joan Bennett) becomes alarmed over her husband’s attentions to Boyer’s sister. This little-known but excellent film was far ahead of its time (for Hollywood) in dealing seriously with psychiatry and mental illness. During the shooting of Private Worlds, director Gregory La Cava, dissatisfied with Charles Boyer’s performance, asked him in what language he was thinking before saying his lines. Boyer replied, French’ (his native language). La Cava advised him to think in English. Boyer followed this advice. He later considered it a turning point in his career. production details USA | Paramount | 84 minutes | 1935 Director: Gregory La Cava Producer: Adolph Zukor Director of Photography: Leon Shamroy Editor: Aubrey Scotto Music: Heinz Roemheld Script: Gregory La Cava.
