G | | Biography, Drama, Musical
Based on the life of Norway's greatest composer Edvard Grieg, and filmed in Norway where he lived. The soundtrack is all Edvard Grieg's music with added lyrics.
The public's obsession with big budget roadshow musicals was coming to an end by the close of the 1960s. A string of box office failures, including Song of Norway (1970), along with _Camelot_, Disney's The Happiest Millionaire (1967), Paint Your Wagon (1969), Hello, Dolly! (1969) and Darling Lili (1970), effectively put paid to the genre. Notable exceptions that found an audience during this period were Fiddler on the Roof (1971) and _Cabaret_, both of which were established theatrical hits.
