Emily and I got to share the stage with Daniel Rodriguez last night. It was a fantastic night; including singing with Debbi Burdett and with David Schaefer at the piano.

Here is a link to an article on the honor Ellisa Lanza Bregman received: https://www.robinsongardens.org/lisa-greer...s-2017-patron-gala/

Very informative. Congratulations to her for recognition of her good work in her community, as well as her continued devotion to her father's legacy.

I read that Ellisa Lanza Bregman is the recipient of the Camellia Award. I am not familiar with this award, but congratulations to her ! I wonder if she will be interviewed on PBS TV, regarding "The Best of Everything" or if she will be a guest on Oprah or Ellen DeGeneres ? Maybe TCM will interview her. I wonder if NPR Radio will interview her ?

TCM showed some of Marsha Hunt's movies on Oct. 17th. One of the movies was "A Letter For Evie" also starring John Carroll and Hume Cronyn, about women, who worked in sewing factories, putting letters or notes in military uniforms, hoping to meet soldiers, etc. John Carroll was a handsome baritone, who was friends with Mario Lanza. He and his second wife, Lucille Ryman discovered Fernando Lamas. He also helped Marilyn Monroe, early , in her career. Happy 100th Birthday to Marsha Hunt !

Good to hear it will be aired on PBS. Anyone recall pretty actress Marsha Hunt. She became 100 on Oct.17. Still was very "with it" at 99, when she was honored. Trust she still is. Seems Ron Howard is making a documentary about Pavarotti. Look forward to it, but wish it were of Mario. Missing Ed McManus here.

Great news ! "The Best of Everything" will be on PBS TV in November. Did Mario Lanza ever sing any Hawaiian songs ? I know he, Betty, met Tyrone Power and his then wife, Linda Christian on the cruise ship to Hawaii. Imagine if he had sung "Sweet Leilani", "The Hawaiian Wedding Song", "Aloha Oe"(Dick Powell sang this in "Flirtation Walk", excellent !),"The Song Of The Islands".

I don't know about Scalia's thoughts re Lanza's voice and singing, but their names were linked once. It was in a 2011 New York Times op-ed piece by Maureen Dowd. The column was called "Cooperation in Evil," about Scalia's views that it was alright to inject religion into public life.

The opening sentence was: "Maybe it’s the Mario Lanza in him. But Nino Scalia relishes being operatically imprudent."

Here's the column:
