Mario Lanza
Pasquale J. Pratico | Trenton, NJ | 01/13/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Good quality recording especially the segment of "The Christophers". The others were lip-sink."
M. SIMPSON | 02/19/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"We found the content lacked continuity. The individual sections were OK as far as they went ."
The greatest voice
David Brianza | 12/15/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Any opportunity to see rare film of the owner of the greatest voice ever to find its way to a human throat is not to be missed. Mario Lanza was without equal in his day, and such remains the case at present. Many of the more candid operatic stars of today admit to Lanza as having served as their inspiration. The world lost far too soon the greatest gift ever presented to the concert stage. Occasionally, there comes along a voice remarkable for its sheer beauty; another may gain fame as the possessor of phenomenal power and size, while another may become known for astonishing range. How breathtaking it truly is when ALL these qualities, and more, come together in a single voice. Mario Lanza. As good as it gets. As good as it CAN get."
