Waltzes from Vienna

Waltzes from Vienna

About

Made by Hitchcock as a way of completing his contract with British International Pictures, his lack of enthusiasm for the project shows. It's a soppy, ineffectual musical that focuses on Strauss's frequently thorny relationship with his musically precocious son, which slides further into rivalry as his flesh and blood's talent manifests itself further.

Cast & Connections

  • Actor: Edmund Gwenn, Bertram Dench, Fay Compton, Marcus Barron, Hindle Edgar, Sybil Grove
  • Director: Alfred Hitchcock
  • Writer: Guy Bolton, Alma Reville
  • Photographer: Glen MacWilliams

In a nutshell

Leading man Gwenn does his best with the material, but even he can't distract us from the unmemorable songs ('Blue Danube' excepted) and daft dialogue.
