One of a handful of films Ken Russell made about the lives of famous composers, The Debussy Film stars Vladek Sheybal as a director who wants to make a movie about the title artist, portrayed by Oliver Reed. By having actors speak in the character of real historical figures, this film allowed Russell to push the envelope of what the BBC would allow in a historical drama.
