The Great Waltz (4-Nov-1938)

Director: Julien Duvivier

Writers: Samuel Hoffenstein; Gottfried Reinhardt; Walter Reisch

Producer: Bernard H. Hyman

Keywords: Drama, Biography

The life of Viennese composer Johann Strauss, rising from struggling composer to the toast of Vienna, and his immersion in a love triangle with his wife and operatic diva Carla Donner. Lavish production, beautifully recalling the image of Vienna in its prime as we once imagined it. Should be viewed mostly as a showcase for music, not in any way a true account. Won an Oscar for Best Cinematography; received additional nominations for Best Supporting Actress and Best Editing.
