This volume includes a detailed transcription of the 1948 film, notes appended to the film's continuity script, a letter by Ophuls written during the film's editing, a biogaphical sketch of Ophuls, the text of Stefan Zweig's novella and a cross-section of memoirs and criticism of the film. It is the story of Lisa, a young girl who rejects the constricting life of her small town and family in order to dedicate her life to a musician, Stefan. The film has an elegant fin-de-siecle Viennese setting and stars Joan Fontaine and Louis Jourdan.
