I would love to have a copy of the new Caruso book by Aldo Mancusi, (hard cover, only 100 pages), but it is very expensive - $75.00!! Unfortunately, I can't afford it. Pity. Ciao.

Hello Everyone,
Hope all is well. I was Blessed to be at the Met Saturday for Luisa Miller. It was wonderful!!
Everyone was fantastic, but Placido was PHENOMENAL!!!
Here is a photo of Gloria Caruso Murry’s son, Eric with his family, at The Enrico Caruso Museum of America, taken in 1998.
Also a photo of the new book that Aldo Mancusi wrote. It is Aldo’s story of why and how he created this one of a kind temple of love and admiration for the Great Caruso. It’s filled with wonderful stories and photographs of Caruso, his family and of the collection it self.
I loved every minute of reading this book. It’s a must have

Colin Murray, now 69, still lives in Jacksonville, FL. Eric - his first name meant to be a variation of Enrico - is 73. Aldo Mancusi had Eric as a guest when the Enrico Caruso Museum in New York City celebrated its 25th anniversary a few years ago. Perhaps Bill Ronayne would something, since he and Aldo are friends and Aldo has come to a number of Bill's lunches.

No, I don't know if that's the same baby. By the way, Sherry Jackson played Caruso's first girl friend , as a child, in "The Great Caruso". She also was one of the children in the movie "Miracle Of Our Lady of Fatima", and later, was on "Make Room For Daddy".

Another historical inaccuracy in the TGC film occurs in this party scene...... they give the impression that "Because" is Caruso's newest recording. He recorded that song in 1912, long before Gloria, or Dorothy for that matter, were on the scene. BTW....Kristine......is the newborn baby in bed with Dorothy earlier in the film and the baby at the party the same child? I'll bet you know, don't you?

The caption with the photo here says it's Gloria.

Interesting and sad that she and EC Jr. both lived in Jacksonville, FL. but never saw or communicated with each other except once, as EC Jr. writes, "she graciously accepted my invitation" to his second marriage, in 1982. Kristine: If anybody knows who the baby was......it's YOU!!

Eric Murray has visited The Enrico Caruso Museum in N.Y. Does anyone know who the baby was, Caruso(Lanza)is holding, while they are listening to "Because" on the Victrola , in that scene ?

Nope, don't know a thing about Gloria's sons but they might still be alive. That transition from horn to the record was interesting. I don't know if that is the real method used at the time to make the transfers but it might have been.

Martino: I was thinking specifically of the scene just before the one you refer to where he is in the recording studio singing into a horn and then seeing the machine cutting into the wax disc. They made a nice transition from the spinning disk in the studio to the spinning record on Caruso's Victrola. I didn't know about Gloria trying to be a singer. I know his son, EC Jr., had some small success in that regard. I don't suppose Gloria is still alive....would be around 98 now I guess. Also had not seen that particular picture of Gloria and EC. Thanks for posting it! Gloria had two sons that I know of. Do you have any info on them to share?
