A B-movie romance with excellent singing
- Ben Larson
Mario Lanza only did 10 movies, and only two with Kathryn Grayson. She could not get along wt him due to his temper and alcohol abuse. That is a real shame as the two together on the Oscar-nominated "Be My Love" was pure magic. (It lost to "Mona Lisa" in another crash of Academy voters.) Current moviegoers can hear Lanza sing in Zodiac or The Polar Express, but why settle for one song when you can enjoy a half dozen by this wonderful tenor. Those who think of Pavarotti when they think of tenors, will be surprised by Lanza's looks. He is more like Sly Stallone with good looks that the typical rotund singer. This movie was a joy to behold as it was funny and sweet. The great David Niven (Separate Tables, Eye of the Devil) was fantastic.
Two Magic Voices
- Joan Slotnick
It was so wonderful to have Mario Lanza and Kathryn Grayson reunited for this movie. They are so very good together. After their pairing in That Midnight Kiss, this movie was a perfect matchup vehicle for them. It is a wonderful musical with the marvelous Be My Love sung so beautifully and the backgrounds and story line are the most colorful. It is a true pleasure to see and hear these two great singers. Totally enjoyable in every way.
