I personally enjoyed this film very much. It is a sweet trip to bygone times when musicals were just good entertainment. The character actors in it, (Cuddles Sakall in particular, and Louis Calhern as the king.) Edumund Purdom does an excellent job in the uneviable position of literally standing in for Mario Lanza.(And he's probably a better all around actor).There is an urban legend that says that Lanza is actually in one sequence in the film, and I think I have found it.
It is the beautiful scene in the cathedral after the old king has dies and Karl is standing in front of the catalfalque. There is a very wide angle shot of him singing 'I'll walk with God' and then a close up of Purdom. I really do think that this is the scene my friend was talking about. Anybody else think so??
