Product Notes

Dazzling? Daring? the Great Waltz may have you searching for ways to describe it's great charms. This cinematic rhapsody loosely based on the life of composer Johann Strauss is truly "an overlooked gem" (The Motion Picture Guide). To capture what the film calls "the spirit" of Strauss' music, the Great Waltz combines exquisite craftsmanship with spirited inventiveness. The splendid back lot re-creations of Viennese settings range from convivial biergartens to ornate palaces. Dimitri Tiomkin's arrangements of Strauss' incredible music (with lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II) swirl and dive. And the camerawork glides with bravura artistry. Julien Duvivier directs, getting radiant performances from two-time Oscar-winner Luise Rainer (The Great Ziegfeld, the Good Earth), Fernand Gravet and Oscar-nominated diva Miliza Korjus. Wonderful? Phenomenal? Choose your own description.
