Dr Faustus is a classic adaptation of Christopher Marlowe’s 1588 play The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus. It stars the legendary Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, plus members of the Oxford University Dramatic Society.

Faustus (Richard Burton) is a scholar at the University of Wittenberg when he earns his doctorate degree. His insatiable appetite for knowledge and power leads him to employ necromancy to conjure Mephistopheles (Elizabeth Taylor) out of hell. He bargains away his soul to Lucifer in exchange for living 24 years during which Mephistopheles will be his slave. Faustus signs the pact in his own blood and Mephistopheles reveals the works of the devil to Faustus.

Released in 1968, the film is a permanent record of a 1966 theatrical performance of Dr Faustus that Burton and Taylor starred in. Neither actors were paid for their performances. Instead all the money earned went towards building a studio-theatre extension at Oxford University now known as the Burton Taylor Studio. After the success of the production which played to a full-house every night, Burton expressed an interest in turning it into a film. A year later the film version was released co-directed by Burton and Nevill Coghill.
