Product Description

Song of Norway (1970)

Director:

Andrew L. Stone

Writers:

Homer Curran (play), Milton Lazarus (musical play)

Stars:

Florence Henderson, Toralv Maurstad, Christina Schollin
 
This musical biography of Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg (Torval Maurstad) is based on the play of the same name. Living in poverty after graduating from a music conservatory, Grieg scandalizes his family by marrying his cousin Nina (Florence Henderson). Grieg has an affair with a former schoolmate, Therese Berg (Christina Schollin), a wealthy woman who makes a deal with her influential father to end the romance if he'll arrange a concert for Grieg in Stockholm. Grieg eventually travels to Rome, where his significance as an artist begins to find appreciation. His association with Therese is not really finished and Grieg's humble piano, a gift from the self-sacrificing Nina, is overshadowed by Therese's gift of a grand piano. Back to back with the subsequent and equally unsuccessful The Great Waltz (1972), the last two films of writer, producer, and director Andrew Stone ended his nearly 50 year career.

    Posted by on Feb 13th 2018

    My father lived in Norway for several years in the 1960's when he was a young man and often misses the country. The movie was released shortly after he returned home and he only saw it once in the theater. My mother asked me if I good find it for him for Christmas. After quite a bit of searching I found Zeus. The dvd arrived and I watched it before I gave it to dad. It looked great for a film that has note yet been restore by modern processing. The colors are vibrant and photography is still crisp and beautiful. Excellent quality all round. Thank you. My father is also very thankful as well.
