Wagner 3 DVD Set
(Richard Burton, Olivier Gielgud,

Richard Wagner was a heroic villain whose fame and exploits were the gossip of Europe. He was also a dangerous political revolutionary whose influence penetrated the fabric of German society in the nineteenth century. A legend in his own lifetime, he was one of the greatest composers to ever live. Richard Burton stars as Wagner, and this proved to be his final film role. Academy Award winner Vanessa Redgrave co-stars as Cosima, Wagner's second wife. The incredible supporting cast also includes screen legends Sir Laurence Olivier, Ralph Richardson and John Gielgud.
