"My public I carried all before me..."

Omnibus now presents a new film by Ken Russell, Dance of the Seven Veils. It's been described as a harsh and often violent caricature of the life of the composer Richard Strauss. This is a personal interpretation by Ken Russell, of certain real and many imaginary events in the composers life. Among them are dramatized sequences about the War and the Nazi persecution of the Jews which contains scenes of considerable violence and horror.
(As far as disclaimers go that is actually fairly mild for what is about to come)

Dance of the Seven Veils: A Comic Strip in 7 Episodes on the life of Richard Strauss 1864-1949

Voice over:
Alas the time is coming when man will give birth to no more stars. 
The dead end of mankind is approaching.
(Cue bombastic cheese music)
Into the squalid helpless men of that epoch, I will the reveal the Superman!

Watch this folks. You'll feel twenty feet taller and fifty bucks richer!
