A proud and ambitious student arrives in Vienna hoping to be the next Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. His name is Ludwig van Beethoven and he is THE MAGNIFICENT REBEL. Here's the factual account of a great composer driven to succeed despite his long battle against deafness. Filmed in and around Vienna where Beethoven actually lived and worked - the international cast is headed by Austrian actor-classical pianist Carl Boehm, who bears a striking resemblance to the man he portrays. Highlighted are the immortal works of the master (including the haunting "Moonlight Sonata" and the stirring "Fifth Symphony").
Starring Karlheinz Böhm, Ernst Nadherny, Ivan Desny
