Song Without End Overview:

Song Without End (1960) was a Biographical - Drama Film directed by George Cukor and Charles Vidor and produced by William Goetz.


Here is the romantic story of Hungarian pianist Franz Liszt (Bogarde), the troubled virtuoso whose scandalous affair with a married countess (Capucine) led to his work as a composer and his eventual seclusion in the Church. On a concert tour, he meets Capucine and she encourages him to focus on his composing rather than his piano playing. When they fall in love, she requests an annulment of her marriage. When the annulment gets rescinded, the princess refuses to live out of wedlock and Bogarde takes holy orders. Begun by Vidor but, upon his death during production, Cukor finished the film.
