      Clyde Gilmour Maclean's Magazine The prince's tenor voice actually belongs to the invisible Mario Lanza. His top notes sound a bit strained now, but the schmaltzy old songs are still hummable. Jan 29, 2020 Full Review Josephine O'Neill Daily Telegraph (Australia) Beer-choruses, balls, parades, and moonlight fill in the gaps of a nostalgic entertainment. Mar 26, 2019 Full Review Ken Hanke Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC) As stiff and old-fashioned as the detachable collars on the men's shirts. Rated: 3/5 Aug 22, 2007 Full Review Steve Crum Video-Reviewmaster.com Purdom lipsincs Lanza, and that is the real attraction of this operetta.

      Eric S I was 14 when the movie came out out, and very romantic. The music is wonderful, and, at 84, in a 60 year marriage, I kept breaking down in tears, remembering all the good times we've shared. How lucky we are to be playing out the loves our lives until one of us dies! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/24 Full Review Sarah M Mario Lanza's voice is phenomenal, and there are some great songs in this musical. If you like old Hollywood musicals, you'll love this. I also really like that the story takes a turn one might not expect. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Boring. Perry to look at, but that's it! Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/21 Full Review Audience Member Epic waste of time. Two hours of buil up and no climax. You sit through boring song after boring song, but there's no payoff. This one should have remained a play for the theater because it's a stain on the cinema screen. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member I loved it! Enjoyed the music, and Cuddles was great as the innkeeper! I bought a copy and watch it often! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Frances H This movie succeeds on the basis of the wonderful music, Mario Lanza's voice, the charm of Ann Blythe and the wonderful band of character actors such as Edmund Gwen and the lovable "Cuddles."
