- Synopsis / Plot
- 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.
