THE MAGNIFICENT REBEL (1961)

A made for TV movie, this one is about a young Beethoven and how he became a popular composer and then slowly lost his hearing. It was interesting to see the story of Beethoven. Learning a little about his life, how he composed even after becoming deaf and what his inspirations were was entertaining. The movie was overall just average and it did feel slow and boring at times. It is a lot of talk and classical music so we think kids will get bored. Not one that you need to search out to see, but maybe if the opportunity presents itself, check it out and see what you learn about Beethoven (the composer not the dog).
