- Special guest appearance by ELLISA LANZA BREGMAN
- As most Lanza fans know by now, Warner Home Video will
be releasing a two-disc Lanza DVD set featuring THAT MIDNIGHT KISS and
THE TOAST OF NEW ORLEANS on July 24. Mark Kidel's outstanding documentary
MARIO LANZA: SINGING TO THE GODS will also be included as an extra on Disc
- In anticipation of this exciting new release, PBS TV
in Detroit will be screening SINGING TO THE GODS on June 13th. This will
be shown as part of the station's fundraising drive and Mario's daughter
Ellisa will be interviewed live in the studio during breaks in the program.
PBS in Detroit also broadcast throughout Canada so this will be a wonderful
opportunity to introduce the Lanza magic to a whole new generation of viewers.
- This special PBS broadcast of SINGING TO THE GODS is
scheduled to air at 8 p.m. on June 13th. Viewers outside Detroit who receive
the station should check their local listing for times of broadcast.
