Song of Revolt

1 member

Strasbourg - 1792. Prussian armies rage outside France's borders, famine and civil strife within. Urged by the Mayor, a young officer named Rouget de Lisle works on a marching song to rally the King's weary troops.

This MGM Tabloid Musical short tells the story of how France's national anthem, "La Marseillaise", came to be written during the French Revolution.
