Movie Clip

For The First Time (1959) - La Donna È Mobile Rudolph Matè directing at the Rome Opera House, Kurt Krasznar the bothered manager, Zsa Zsa Gabor regal in the audience, and Mario Lanza introduced, in his last movie, as singer Tonino, offering the Verdi aria from Rigoletto for fans who couldn’t afford seats, in For The First Time, 1959.
Thousands Cheer (1944) - Kathryn Jones, Soprano End of the credits proclaiming the first movie appearance of MGM stalwart to-be Jose Iturbi, conducting for singer Kathryn (Grayson) from Verdi's La Traviata, her divorced parents (Mary Astor, John Boles) in the concert hall, opening MGM's patriotic all-star musical Thousands Cheer, 1944.
One Night Of Love (1934) - Miss Moore As Mary Singing from La Traviata, the opening of the Columbia picture which, after a rough start, finally made opera singer Grace Moore a movie star, and won her an Academy Award nomination, One Night Of Love, 1934, co-starring Lyle Talbot and Tulio Carminati.
One Night Of Love (1934) - Sempra Libera It never went so easy for Grace Moore in the Hollywood as it does here, as American Mary, her first scene having given up everything to study opera in Italy, charming her neighbors in Milan, still singing from La Traviata, in Moore's first movie hit, One Night Of Love, 1934.
Interrupted Melody (1955) - Winchelsea In 1928 Australia, young singer Marjorie Lawrence (Eleanor Parker) races to a regional competition (her stunt double ducking behind the crates), arriving just in time to deliver her Verdi aria, pretty much historically accurate, early in MGM's Interrupted Melody, 1955.
