Singer gets girl, singer loses girl, singer wins in the end.
Some people think that this is the best of Mario Lanza's 10 film appearances. It actually had a good story behind it.
Lanza plays an Elvis-type role (G.I. Blues) as he goes into the Army. He hits the jackpot immediately as his drill sergeant is a big fan, and he also wants to get his sister on stage. Lanza, of course, falls for the sister, Doretta Morrow, in her only movie role.
Their duet, Because You're Mine, was nominated for an Oscar, but lost to High Noon (Do Not Forsake Me, Oh My Darlin').
It was a good story of love found, lost, and found again, with a bucket-load of Lanza songs.
