This is jewel, story of great man told by another great man.

This is an excellent documentary on Mario Lanza. He was a fabulous singer and has never been equalled - we miss him so much but are so glad he touched our lives with his fantastic voice and are so grateful that he lived among us, doing 7 films. and also so many recordings in his sometimes sad life. We can never forget his wonderful dazzling smile and his love for life. Hopefully someone with same talents will fill his shoes. God Bless You, Dear Mario-we will cherish you forever!

I CRIED LIKE A BABY WHEN HE PASSED I WAS SICK AND VERY YOUNG!! WHAT A VOICE HE HAD MY GOD!!

THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bellisimo, just watched this wonderful film with my 72 year old mum of the glorious sounding Mario. She introduced me to his lush voice from an early age and he's someone that I will always enjoy listening to. I was a little shocked by some of what was reported in this film but whatever the truth we were blessed that he shared his passionate singing in a more accessible format than opera houses. Back then maybe he wouldn't have released as many records had he been an operatic star.

We should be grateful to Placido for this documentary. It is a fitting homage to Mario Lanza. It is filled with examples of the fantastic talent of Mario Lanza. He was amazing. He was simultaneously a great tenor, a marvelous recording artist, a global movie star and a highly sought after concert performer. A splendid book captures his talent, passion and love of his art: A KID FROM PHILADELPHIA, MARIO LANZA, THE VOICE OF THE POETS. It is a beautiful homage and should be read while listening to Mario sing. No one could sing like Lanza. He was unique and special.

heavenly!!!!

Can't get enough of that exquisite tenor voice.

Thank You Placido Domingo For This Wonderful Documentary Of Mario Lanza. P.S. Placido Domingo, You Are Also A Great And Amazing Opera Tenor!!!
Joe Bowen
Mario Lanza was one of my favorite singers doing operas when I was in high school. A once in a lifetime great tenor singer & too bad we lost him when he was very young @ 38.
Palmarola2012
Mario Lanza was magnificent, just as Placido Domingo explains about his idol. He was the most versatile tenor of all time.  He sang lyric opera magnificently as he did popular songs; perform on the stage and screen, radio and television.  There has never been anyone like him before or after who also had an amazing influence on singers and performers everywhere.  A new, bestselling book, “A KID FROM PHILADELPHIA, MARIO LANZA, THE VOICE OF THE POETS,” is a wonderful homage to one of the greatest entertainers of all time. It is a must for anyone who loves Lanza and great music and great voices
Marcela castaño
Priceless !

He turned so many of us (Domingo's age) and younger to opera, including myself.
Maria Camarena
Lanza was Elvis Presley favorite singer. He had all his albums.

Mario Lanza tinha uma voz belíssima . Era certamente o Caruso americano . Aliás The Great Caruso marcou minha juventude (estou com 68) e recentemente consegui comprar o DVD do filme que vejo e revejo . Realmente ele teria tido uma carreira operística ímpar , infelizmente Hollywood o destruiu como aliás fez com tantos outros .

I loved to listen to Mario Lanza, of whom I was introduced to by my mother when she took me to the show to see him and hear his glorious voice. I still have my own and my parents record albums of his beautiful and astounding singing voice.
Denis Cullis
My mom and dad loved mario Lanza and they played his songs he is the best of the best xxxxxxxden

Uno de mis ídolos de siempre.....LANZA ETERNO.
Ian Kaye
MARIO NOT ONLY HAD A GREAT VOICE, BUT A MAGICAL ONE. THERE ARE MANY GREAT VOICES, NOT ALL HAVE THAT MAGICAL QUALITY AND CHARACTER SO SPECIAL. HE WAS ALSO BLESSED WITH MUSICAL JUDGMENT AND AWARENESS OF HIS VOCAL TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS AND RECEIVED GREAT TRAINING FROM TEACHERS LIKE, ROSATTI, ROBERT WEEDE,AND EVERY TALENTED COLLEAGUE HE WORKED WITH. HE ABSORBED LIKE A SPONGE FROM RECORDINGS. HE HAD THE DISCERNING ABILITY TO KNOW WHAT WAS GOOD FOR HIS VOICE . I CRIED WHEN HE DIED AT AGE 38. IAN. KAYE
Robert Smale
His life was an opera. What a tragedy. But what a voice!! The consummate tenor! He had the voice like no other! Truly a voice gifted from God! The emotion, power, and diction unmatched. Bravo Mario!

Mario Lanza: "The Opera Tenor Of "Greatness!!!" Amazing, Fantastic, Marvelous!!! **Unsung**
Gladys Armasa
!!JAMAS !! ME RESIGNARE POR LA MUERTE INJUSTA DE ALGUIEN TAN MARAVILLOSO Y QUE TODOS LOS QUE TUVIERON EL PRIVILEGIO DE CONOCERLO Y TRATARLO, LO DESCRIBEN COMO UNA PERSONA NOBLE Y BUENA QUE AMABA MUCHO A SU ESPOSA Y SUS HIJOS. PERO NO LOGRO EL APOYO QUE MERECIA PARA LLEGAR A LA CIMA DE LA OPERA. ( PARA LO QUE HABIA NACIDO) PRUEBA ES QUE NO APARECIO NADIE COMO EL.NI CON SU PRESENCIA NI PERSONALIDAD Y MUCHO MENOS CON SU INCOMPARABLE E INIGUALABLE, GARGANTA QUE ABRIGABA UNA VOZ COMO NO HABRA OTRA. MARIO LANZA EL UNICO.
Karen Fredericks
Some say Lanza wasted his talent. I think there was a God given reason that he choose the Hollywood route. He brought wonderful songs from many opera's to millions of people, many who may have never had the chance to enter a theatre to see and hear a classical opera. His was a major achievement. He wasnt "wasted" at all.
J D
Such an exquisite voice. He has been my favourite since I was 5 years old.

One of the greats!!!

ESTE DOCUMENTAL ES , TREMENDAMENTE EMOTIVO. Y MUESTRA LO MUCHO QUE LUCHO PARA TRIUNFAR Y QUE LO CONOSCA EL GRAN "PUBLICO" , ESE QUE COMPLETA LA OBRA DE SUS VERDADEROS " ARTISTAS", Y QUE MIENTRAS LO RECORDEMOS, VIVIRA PARA QUE NUEVAS GENERACIONES DISFRUTEN DEL TALENTO Y BELLEZA DE UNA VOZ SOÑADA. EN MEDIO DE TANTA MEDIOCRIDAD

Uno dei più belli ricordi della mia gioventu. Una voce indimenticabile, troppo presto scomparso.

Weiler and Mayer...Those two drove this man into a early grave.

ESSA PESSOA NÃO ERA DESSE MUNDO!!!!
Antonio Borriello
I was born and raised 1 block away from his home on the 600 block of christian street. His church parish was my parish. I sang with the choir in the same exact choir loft he sang in....oh, what an honor. Every year our parish had a commemorative Mass for his family and I was permitted to visit the home afterwards. My entire life I've always felt like I knew him, like I could hang around with him as one of the guys in the neighborhood, with a dream of keeping him way from the things that hurt him. He has been an influence and inspiration to me, although I am not blessed with his voice nor his opportunity. I have always fancied him because of his style , his passion, although he was not a professional opera tenor. No tenor have I ever heard tell the story of any particular aria the way his voice did. Wish you were still here Mario.
J D
Magnificent! Love Mario!
Atiz Aries
the best voice of all tenors over the past centuries and years in future

He was my hero from the Toast of New Orleans that I heard in 1951 when I was 6. Now at 73, I am thrilled to sing his songs. He remains my hero. Thanks to YouTube to keep his memory alive for all generations.
Antonio Lourenço Tomazetti
Uma voz inigualável, talvez nunca mais teremos uma voz assim, algumas pessoas vem ao mundo para serem fontes de inspiração esse é o caso de Mario Lanza, influenciou e vai continuar servindo de inspiração para tenores do bel canto, enquanto existir a opera esse legado de Mario vai acompanhar pela eternidade.
Stephanie Ladeinde
I just watch the doc of Enrico Caruso . at his talent..Mario is a genius too

An amazing film, from ? 45 or so years ago?, with such a young Domingo, and so many well-known faces from the past that are a joy to see. Many thanks.

I am only 23 years old and I am a Mario Lanza fan. I am a fan of old music in general, particularly big band. The story I am about to tell is interesting, about how I first heard of Mario Lanza. It was sort of an accident. I had never heard of him before. My grandparents are the ones who first got me interested in old music from the 1930s, '40s, and '50s. One day, I was on the phone with my grandfather. The previous time I had talked to him on the phone, he was having some voice problems. I remembered that, so then this next time around, I asked him, "how is your voice?" His unusual response caught me by surprise. He said "Oh, like Mario Lanza. " He was joking obviously. My grandfather is in fact a very good singer, but, of course, nothing like Mario. Now, again, I had never heard of Mario Lanza up until this point, so I had no idea who my grandfather was referring to. When I asked him "who's that?," and he then told me who Mario Lanza was, I was surprised, and then decided to go to YouTube and listen to some recordings. Boy was I impressed. I couldn't believe what a big sound Mario had to his voice. It was a shame he didn't live very long. I don't think my grandfather was ever a big Mario Lanza fan. He just happened to see him on TV I think only once, but never really listened to him. Still, I give my grandfather a lot of credit. Chances are if it wasn't for him, I would not have heard of this super talented songbird. Thank you grandpa! XOXO!

Csodás hang.

Mario was indeed a powerful music voice in his generation!!
Rose Rienzo
Again and again i hear his voice and I am taken to another place in time, only mario could do that to me. His passion in his face made each song he sang his own. The voice was truly heaven sent, and I was lucky enough to have heard it thousands of times I am 82 yrs young. God bless u mario, as u sing with the angels.
Ирина Малафеева
Помимо своего бесподобного голоса и потрясающего воздействия на слушателей , поющий киноактёр Марио Ланца приобщил к оперному искусству тех, кто никогда бы не пошёл в оперу и побудил многих молодых людей к занятиям оперным пением. И спасибо ему огромное за это!!!

Mario Lanza enriqueció mi adolescencia en aquellos tiempos inolvidables donde mis padres vivian y toda nuestra familia era un mundo de esplendor al arrullo inolvidable de aquellos artistas inmortales,.}

Is It True The Late Mario Lanza Lost Out To Oreste Kierop In The 1956 Film Classic Musical "The Vagabond King" ? How Accurate Is It? I Await Your Answer.

Why do I not believe anything James Bacon says? I’ve never heard him say anything decent about Mario.

A sad ending.

My mother loved all the movies of Mario Lanza so I remember The Great Caruso and ma y others and maybe it was the beginning of my love for opera

Приятно слушать отзывы Пласидо Доминго о Марио Ланса. Я считаю Доминго одним из самых лучших исполнителей, мастером. Я честно говоря не вижу большого сходства между Марио и Карузо. Возможно записи Карузо не совершенны и это сказывается. Но возможно имеют в виду уровень мастерства, силу воздействия на слушателя. Поклонником Марио был наш Муслим Магомаев. Очень хороший певец баритон. Он написал книгу о Марио Ланса. Ланса похоже уникален в своей яркости и экспрессии.

Shame he was a narcissist... What a talent otherwise!
Silversled
Interesting how the artistically greedy Placido Domingo HAS to make it all about himself, rather than about Lanza, every chance he gets.
sugarbist
I always object and I think it's demeaning to call anyone the American Caruso. Whether referring to Lanza or Richard Tucker. Furthermore, Caruso sang over 900 performances at the Met.
randomuser1105
Wow. I didn't know that Mario Lanza was murdered by the mob.
Robert Howes
No I don't think that mario lanza would have made a great Opera singer. He had the voice but disclipine appear to have been a problem forhim as shown by his relations with studio bosses. He had found his forte in film and thats where he shone. He had a superb voice no doubt , singing separate arias is quite different to singing with a full cast in an Opera.
Andrea M
12:46m - Every other producer walked out, I was... left there. 12:54m - Lanza looked like... like a street bum or something
TheCarnivalguy
Whenever I here Kathryn Grayson singing my ears hurt. Her light, uneven soprano kept some of MGM's musicals from being truly great. Mayer must have really been enamored with her, or drunk the day of her audition for that studio. Maybe Lanza's groping affected her vocal chords.
