      Audience Member Mario Lanza's final film was a pleasant musical drama which allowed the tenor to provide plenty of music - both pop and opera. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Lanza's last film is an enjoyable lightweight concoction with some lovely scenery and the star in glorious voice. He performs many songs and as usual those are the strongest parts of the film since Mario was more of a personality than an actor but his part doesn't demand too much of him and he does fine with it. While Lanza sounds wonderful he's not looking his best, probably a result of his hard living ways which of course resulted in his passing shortly after the completion of this film. Someone who is a knockout is Zsa Zsa Gabor, her part is small but she perks up the picture every time she sweeps onto the screen beautifully dressed and oozing a sophistication that would be hard to find today. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
