- 1971 - A story that just had to be filmed - The Luchino Visconti directed film of Thomas Mann's famous novella, Death In Venice was released on this date. The film tells the story of the middle-aged Aschenbach, who travels to a Venetian seaside resort in search of repose after a period of artistic and personal stress. But he finds no peace there, for he soon develops a strong attraction to an adolescent boy, Tadzio, on vacation with his family. The story was inspired by Mann's own personal experience of falling for Wladyslaw Moes, an 11-year-old sailor-suited boy he saw in Venice in 1911. The film starred Björn Andrésen as the youth, who strikes many memorable statuesque erotic poses for both the audience and for Aschenbach.
