The Man in Half Moon Street (1945) (remade in 1959 by Hammer Films as The Man Who Could Cheat Death) is a fantasy film dealing with a man who retains his youth and cannot die, living throughout the ages. It bears some comparison to Oscar Wilde's Picture of Dorian Gray, except that there are more logical explanations for the eternal youth of the main character. The film is based on a play by Barré Lyndon, and stars Nils Asther and Helen Walker with direction by Ralph Murphy. This film is not available on DVD or VHS, although its 1959 remake is available on DVD from Legend Films.
