Synopsis

Robert Altman's perspective on Frank Norris' novel "McTeague," a turn-of-the-century tale of a simple dentist and his wife whose lives are destroyed by a bag of gold. Includes passages from the novel, read by Studs Terkel; scenes from composer William Bolcom's music-drama, a 1992 world premiere at Lyric Opera of Chicago; and clips from Erich von Stroheim's 1924 silent film, "Greed," another interpretation of Norris' book.
