A fictionalized account of Polish pianist Frederic Chopin. As a young child, Chopin is playing a piece by Mozart when he notices Polish people being taken prisoner by Russian authorities. Years later, he works in secret for Polish patriotism, including coming late to an important concert because of a secret meeting, then stops his performance when the Russian Governor of Poland enters, declaring that he does not play for Czarist butchers. He flees to Paris, where Franz Liszt recognizes his genius and George Sand takes him in. Nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Actor.

Set in Poland and Paris.

10 x 8 inches. Very Good plus, with pinholes and some creasing at the corners.
