Description by

The romantic story of Hungarian pianist Franz Liszt (Dirk Bogarde), whose scandalous love affair forced him to abandon his adoring audiences.

Product Description:

Buoyed by an Academy Award-winning score, this powerful musical biography began shooting under the direction of Charles Vidor, but when he became ill, George Cukor completed the film. SONG WITHOUT END tells the romantic story of Hungarian pianist Franz Liszt, the troubled virtuoso whose scandalous affair with a married countess forced him to abandon performing and become a composer. Dirk Bogarde portrays Franz Liszt, who leaves his mistress, Countess Marie (Genevieve Page), to go on a concert tour to reaffirm his reputation as the mid-19th century's greatest pianist. In the process he meets Carolyne (Parisian fashion model Capucine, in her debut), a devoutly religious Russian princess, and becomes greatly influenced by her beliefs.

Plot Synopsis:

The story of Hungarian pianist Franz Liszt (Dirk Bogarde) who has an affair with a married Russian noblewoman (ex-model Capucine) that is both traumatic and life changing, causing him to focus more exclusively on composing rather than performing, in the process beginning a life that traverses the finest royal courts and opera houses.


Production Notes:

  • Shot on location in Vienna.
  • Director Charles Vidor died during the filming; the picture was finished by George Cukor. He didn't want to get screen credit, and the Director's Guild agreed, but the studio gave him equal credit with Vidor.
  • Feature film debut for Parisian actress Capucine, a former fashion model.
  • Jorge Bolet performed the piano pieces.
  • The film was originally titled THE MAGIC FLAME.
