The Films of Mario Lanza is an informative look at the relatively short movie career of one of the greatest voices and personalities of the twentieth century. The story of Mario Lanza was a sad one but he captured the hearts of the movie going public over a ten year period. His films still entertain old and new audiences alike since his untimely passing in 1959 and they continue to inspire new generations of performers and aficionados. This publication provides the reader with a wealth of behind the scenes material and a glimpse of the movie making process at its best and sometimes at its worse. The inclusion of production and casual photos, assorted ephemera as well as recording logs for all the films further enhances the readerís enjoyment and understanding of what was going on in the often very turbulent career of a superbly gifted performer.
