What Is The Most Expensive Film Ever Made And The Most Expensive Opera Ever Staged?

On January 13, 1957, an American production of Prokofiev's opera War and Peace, conducted by Peter Herman Adler, was telecast in the United States by NBC-TV.

In August 1972, the 484 minute Sergei Bondarchuk Soviet film version of Tolstoi's War and Peace was shown in the United States in a four-part presentation on ABC-TV. Mr. Bondarchuk also starred as Count Pierre Bezukhov.
