Editorial Reviews

Out of print in the U.S.! 1960 film starring Dirk Bogarde, Genevieve Page and Capucine. Buoyed by an Academy Award-winning score, 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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Quality of this DVD's clarity May 18, 2007
Format:DVD
We have recently bought this DVD from Amazon as the clarity of the picture is shocking, it is out of focus most of the time! The subtitles in English are absolutely incorrect and bizarre. At the same time we bought another classic DVD and it was perfect. Very disappointing! Perhaps we have received a bad copy. Is there anything that can be done about this.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Perfect Time Killer April 25, 2003
By BLee
Format:VHS Tape
I have gone through this film twice and still find this interesting.
This is not a documentary and as such don't expect too much depth or insight from this portrayal of Liszt, or else most of audience might be bored to death. Who cares about his study with Czerny or his religious faith in such a film anyway?
Instead, we have quite a lot of romances with pretty faces, elegant dresses and magnificent palaces. There was even a brief mention about Chopin and Wagner in the background. Visual effect was excellent and even the actor on the piano was so remarkable.
I'm not too sure though if Boglet would suit the taste of all piano lovers, probably not: Liszt is Liszt, who can compare with him when even Anton Rubinstein wanted to be his pupil. But for the general audience, it's just marvelous. The sound is wonderful too, not just the music,the dialoges too.
The plot was forceful and the rhythm fast and there is not a single scene that is boring. The result: one could easily sit still in front of it for the whole length of 130 minutes and for twice.
Highly recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars BUY THE VHS INSTEAD March 2, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I WAS BARELY 10 MINUTES INTO THE MOVIE WHEN I NOTICED (I HAD THE VHS; WHEN I GOT THE DVD I SENT THE VHS TO MY SISTER...WHAT A MISTAKE!)A KEY SCENE WAS NOT THERE..AND, I AM SPEAKING OF ABOUT 5 MINUTES OF LIZST ON A CHURCH ORGAN AND THE DUST-UP AND DECISION THAT FOLLOWED. SO, WHEN HE NEXT APPEARS AT A CONCERT HALL, YOU WONDER WHY. FORGET ABOUT THE DVD UNLESS...AND I AM NOT SURE MORE SCENES HAVE NOT BEEN CUT AS I STOPPED TO WRITE THIS REVIEW SOON AS I SAW THAT AT LEAST ONE SCENE WAS GONE...YOU DO NOT WANT THE WHOLE MOVIE. WHAT A WASTE!! I WILL BE SELLING DVD AS SOON AS I CAN FIND A NEW/USED VHS!

2.0 out of 5 stars Fictional portrayal of Franz! January 28, 2002
By Rich
Format:VHS Tape
Why does Hollywood distort reality and fabricate (...) fiction? Liszt had one of the most fascinating lives in 19th Century Europe, so why not stick to facts rather than conjure up poor fiction. Right from the start it's evident that they had little knowledge of Liszt by starring Dirk Bogarde, with short curly hair, as Liszt! Did they bother to even look at a photo or painting of Liszt... who had long straight hair! That visual inaccuracy sets the tone for the rest of this character assassination Without End.
The ridiculous notion that Liszt felt inferior to Chopin for not writing music is utter nonsense. The early version of Liszt's monumental "Transcendental Etudes" began in 1828, long before he even met Chopin! These pieces are some of the most revolutionary scores ever written for the piano! Yet, this film makes Liszt out to be a sap as a composer. Likewise, it also distorts his relationship with the Countess, who is made out to be a poor angelic figure coldly trampled upon by Liszt. Factual History knows she had emotional problems before meeting Liszt, which flared and became worse culminating into the major cause of their separation. Her brutal retaliation was to write a biting novel about Liszt years later. Some of the story is accurate especially his devotion and philosophy towards Art, which saves this film from getting a half star rating. Watch knowing the falsehoods and strong points mentioned herein and you should find some enjoyment. Especially since Jorge Bolet's sound track is the redeeming part of this film, as no matter how hard someone tries to defame Liszt...his powerful music shall eternally and triumphantly rise above such mediocrity.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why is this not in 16:9? August 9, 2008
Format:DVD
I remember seeing this film in CinemaScope when it was first released. It was excelent in color and four track stereo sound. This film was such a major release in Australia that Columbia had an intermission during screening. Why hasn't a good 16:9 digial transfer to DVD been produced for this feature? Further, why has it been cut?

1.0 out of 5 stars What a Disappointment!! December 16, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I cannot believe what poor quality this DVD has! It's blurry, the sound is bad, scenes have been cut. This is a total waste of money! Thank God I saved my VHS copy. I love this movie and I can't imagine why they desecrated it like this. Hang onto your VHS copies or try to find them, they are 100 times better!

1.0 out of 5 stars Unacceptable DVD quality March 9, 2010
By Kuru
Format:DVD
Don't buy this. The DVD is too poorly made to be enjoyable or even watchable. The picture is jittery and the colors are faded. The DVD is a Chinese-made piece of junk. Perhaps if you paid $1 for it from a street vendor in Beijing you'd be content, but this is in no way a commercially marketable product.

The movie itself is excellent, BTW . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars A musical feast for Lisztians everywhere!!! September 13, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
While the costumes were beautiful and the acting very good, no one can deny the magnificence of the virtuoso of Lizst and Jorge Bolet's interpretations of his music. I was spellbound by each piece that I heard! I was intrigued by the acting of Dirk Bogarde as (after reading about Lizst's life) he conveyed in less than 2 hours, the essence of Liszt's struggle with living life between heaven and hell. A feast and a treasure for those who might dare enter the tormented world of Liszt!!!

Great Movie. I first saw it at the Radio City Music Hall in New York City in 1960. The music was outstanding and so were the stars.
