Luchino Visconti's sumptuously decadent epic on the life of the 19th-century "Mad King of Bavaria" stars Helmut Berger in the title role. The film chronicles Ludwig's platonic affair with Austrian princess Elizabeth (Romy Schneider), his affection for young men, his patronage of struggling composer Richard Wagner (Trevor Howard) and his mysterious death. With Silvana Mangano, Gert Frobe. 3 3/4 hrs. total on two discs. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: Italian Dolby Digital stereo; Subtitles: English; featurettes. In Italian with English subtitles.
