English Summary:

Mayerling is a 1968 romantic tragedy film starring Omar Sharif, Catherine Deneuve, James Mason, Ava Gardner, Geneviève Page, James Robertson Justice and Andréa Parisy. It was written and directed by Terence Young. The film was made by Les Films Corona and Winchester and distributed by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.

It was based on the novels Mayerling by Claude Anet and L'Archiduc by Michel Arnold and the 1936 film Mayerling, directed by Anatole Litvak, which dealt with the real-life Mayerling Incident.

Plot:

In the 1880s, Crown Prince Rudolf of Austria (Sharif) clashes with his father, Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria (Mason) and his mother Empress Elisabeth (Gardner), over implementing progressive policies for their country. Rudolf soon feels he is a man born at the wrong time in a country that does not realize the need for social reform. The Prince of Wales (Robertson Justice), later to become Britain's King Edward VII, provides comic relief.

 

Hungarian Summary:

Terence Young filmje Rudolf herceg tragikus kimenetelű életét dolgozza fel. 1881-ben a herceget rákényszerítik, hogy feleségül vegye Stefánia hercegnőt. Hamarosan gyermekük születik, ám Rudolf nem boldog a házasságában. Nőügyeivel folyamatosan botrányokba keveredik, szíve mélyén azonban az igaz szerelemre vágyik. Minden megváltozik, amikor megismerkedik a tizenhét éves Vetsera Máriával. Ferenc József császár hallani sem akar fia válásáról. A kétségbeesett szerelmesek öngyilkosságra szánják el magukat a Mayerling vadászkastélyban.
