A frustrated pianist himself, music journalist Myles Clarkson (Alan Alda) is thrilled to interview virtuoso Duncan Ely (Curt Jurgens). Duncan, however, is terminally ill and not much interested in Myles until noticing that Myles' hands are ideally suited for piano. Suddenly, he can't get enough of his new friend, and Myles' wife, Paula (Jacqueline Bisset), becomes suspicious of Duncan's intentions. Her suspicions grow when Duncan dies and Myles mysteriously becomes a virtuoso overnight.

Audience Reviews for The Mephisto Waltz

  • Aug 06, 2008
    it was a gd horror movie i guess i saw this movie last night and there were some parts i did not like but still a gd horor movie if u like old horror movie then u have to see it and its about A music journalist (Alan Alda) scores the interview of a lifetime when a terminally ill piano virtuoso (Curd Jürgens) agrees to talk to him. But the opportunity doesn't come cheap -- the price is giving up his soul. Although the writer's wife (Jacqueline Bisset) suspects something's wrong, she has no idea her husband's been possessed. Barbara Parkins also stars in this classic 1970s thriller.
