Visconti’s sumptuous adaptation of Thomas Mann’s famed novella finds esteemed composer Dirk Bogarde destroyed by his own desire for an unattainably beautiful boy vacationing at his hotel on the Lido. Totally consumed by longing, he fails to heed the warning signs of a cholera epidemic sweeping through the city. (Jan ’73 to Mar ’74)
