Doctor Glas (Swedish: Doktor Glas) is a 1942 Swedish drama film directed by Rune Carlsten and starring Georg Rydeberg, Irma Christenson and Hilda Borgström. It is based on the 1905 novel of the same name by Hjalmar Söderberg.
Dr. Glas, an austere and well-respected physician, is in love with Helga Gregorius, one of his patients. When she confides in him that her husband’s sexual attentions disgust her but that, despite this, he will not leave her alone, the doctor begins to plot to rid her of him.
