Poster THE MERRY WIDOW - 1982

In the kingdom of Marshovia, Count Danilo woos the beautiful widow Sonia. But she, aware of Danilo's womanizing ways, rejects his advances. Her curt dismissal conceals her genuine attraction to the Count, however, and the emotionally confused Sonia decides to flee Marshovia and Danilo for the charms of gay Paris. Because of Sonia's extensive wealth, her departure leaves the Marshovian royals in a tizzy -- and soon they've dispatched Danilo to the City of Lights with orders to wed the lovely lady...

Music by Franz Lehár.
