Forgot to mention about the clock that it has a smooth sweeping hand rather than the type that are jerky.

Thanks to the good wishes regarding my health. My niece suggested taking ibuprofen and using heating pads. It worked wonders and now I can bend down, which I could not do this morning. I have an announcement:

CUTE NEW MARIO LANZA DESK CLOCK WITH STAND. This is a clock made by hand (each one is different) using original 45 rpm record centers. The clock is quartz and has a red minute hand. It also has the RCA logo on top. It comes with a handy stand too. They come from England and cost 20.00 plus shipping. I tried to upload an image but could not. So, if you want to see it just go to ebay and search "Mario Lanza Vinyl Record Single Clock". I love it!

Julie (Suzanne): The RCA LP "A Mario Lanza Program" is the Albert Hall concert of Jan 16th, 1958. It is also the BMG CD "Lanza In London", which is still in print. The CD contains 3 additional tracks not on the LP: Lasciatemi Morire, Softly as in a Morning Sunrise, and La donna e Mobile. The CD has all of Lanza's singing. The only omissions are the 4 piano solos by Callinicos. Ciao.

Julie Page. (Suzanne) Sam. No more superman stunts,OK? glad you're ok(well sort of). I believe that Jeanette MacDonald was married to Gene Raymond, the actor. Kristine, may be you can look that up. Think Jeanette passed away at an early age, with a heart ailment. The recording"A Mario Lanza Program" , released after his death, I've ordered, although I'm fairly sure most of it is on other CDs which I own. Going to look through them all, as I'm familiar with all the selections, but wondered if this might be slightly different .Anyone? Thanks.

WOW, what an afternoon I had. I was trying to move a very, very heavy Fisher tube receiver that is a very high end piece. Well, in trying to lift it, I faltered and then tripped over a cable and ended on the ground with the amp hitting my right arm. Blood everywhere, especially the right arm and part of the left arm. Being alone, I did the best I could with Peroxide and bandages. Hurt my ribs too. But tonight is among the best nights for singing at a restaurant I love, so I'm going to cover up the damage with my black Tesla auto jacket and go sing. I felt like Mario in The Great Caruso when he said to Dorothy: "The voice is not gone, why should I not sing?" or something to that effect. Ironically, the receiver suffered absolutely no damage!

I have watched all the MacDonald/Eddy movies more than once just as I enjoy rewatching the Lanza films (including Student Prince). Nelson Eddy is not in Mario's league although Eddy's performance in the Disney cartoon "Willie the Operatic Whale" is what started my love of opera as a young teen...and eventually led to discovering Mario. MacDonald's singing is close in quality to many of Lanza's co-stars but her beauty exceeds them all. Maybe I'll watch one of them again this afternoon!

Gary, there is a biopic about Mac/Eddy being planned, based on the book "Singing Sweethearts", by Sharon Rich, who is Head of Mac/Eddy Fan Club. It tells of their love affair. I read it a few years ago. By the way, that Lanza Lives T-Shirt, from the photos, I've seen , looks great !

Kristine..your mention of Jeanette MacDonald brought back a flood of memories of her and Nelson Eddy singing wonderful songs in the movies they made together. I was just a kid when I first heard them and I loved their duets. I believe they had an on off (love) relationship for the rest of their lives and Jeanette had several miscarriages re. Eddy being the father.
On a more recent and up to date movie,I recently saw Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga in the movie A Star Is Born. Gaga like MacDonald is a terrific singer and a pretty good actor as well. Cheers..Gary.

Linz: I am getting near that last chapter. But I must say for now that your book is chock full of revelations to me and I'm sure to others. I won't go into detail because I'm ready for bed at about midnight. But I will comment further.

Today (June 18th)would have been Jeanette MacDonald's birthday. She was also born in Philadelphia. It's also, Sir Paul McCartney's 77th Birthday ! Did you know , he , also, recorded "It's Now Or Never" ? I found it on You Tube. Are there any plans to release Mario Lanza's movies in one DVD package ? There are DVD packages of Clark Gable's movies, James Stewart's movies, Alice Faye's movies, and others.

Linz to Sam: Phew! In the nick of time. I look forward to your continuing commentary, especially on the last chapter, given your current situation—from which I fervently wish you to emerge stronger yet. As Licia says, "Listen to Marrrrrrio!"
