The story of a Scot who was called a 'magnificent failure,' also a 'secret hero.' Patrick Geddes was the father of modern town-planning, a professor of botany who never took a degree, the originator of the saying that specialism means knowing more and more about less and less.
He was a man who bubbled over with ideas - ideas about life and living, about sex and education, and a host of other subjects.
His failures were due to the fact that he was always from 50 to 100, perhaps 200, years before his time

Gina Lollobrigida with Vittorio Gassman , Robert Alda
Gina Lollobrigida plays the Italian soprano Lina Cavalieri in this screen biography, directed by Robert Z. Leonard , which also features the voice of the famous Italian tenor Mario del Monaco. Lina Cavalieri is torn between a Russian prince who once rescued her from a gang of hoodlums in a Roman theatre; Mario Silvani , a tenor who launches her into a career as an opera singer; and her teacher Maestro Doria whose attentions are unwelcome.
Eventually the threads are brought together at a performance of Tosca in front of the Russian Tsar's court.
