NTSC/Region 0. Unavailable in the U.S.! This 1951 biopic on the life of Opera legend Enrico Caruso stars Mario Lanza (in the title role) and Ann Blyth and was directed by Richard Thorpe. This satisfying fictionalized biography explores the life and loves of the great tenor from Naples who became the toast of the Metropolitan Opera in New York City, but died just as he reached his peak. Lanza is magnificent in the role and the score is an opera lover's dream with 27 musical numbers including arias from La Boheme, I Pagliacci, and Rigoletto. Castaway.
