Mayerling

I put this
movie
on my Netflix queue because of this
review,
which says:

This is a very sophisticated tearjerker. You can weep
over it without feeling either your intelligence or dignity has
been insulted.

I didn’t weep, but I did enjoy the sophistication.

The review also says:

Litvak lingers too long on ballets and balls and on one really hideous oompah beer garden number.

I enjoyed the oompah beer garden number (which happens twice), but the music I was
really glad the movie lingered on was the gypsy dance band,
centered by a hammered dulcimer.
