Producer Peter Fetterman traveled to Italy to ask opera star Luciano Pavarotti about doing the film. The pair went to the famous Giorgio Fini Restaurant to work out the details for the movie, and decided to name Pavarotti's tenor opera star part after the restaurateur, and thus Pavarotti's character in the film was named Giorgio Fini.

Another singer makes a movie. Worth seeing one time.
I was fortunate enough to work as an extra in this movie. I was a doctor in the background in a hospital scene. The extras who worked with Pavoratti liked him. He was a pleasant, unassuming guy who spent a lot of time at the craft services table (snack table).
There was one scene in the movie that had one quote which made the movie worth seeing from my point of view. In a restaurant setting, Pavoratti's character takes his date into a fancy, expensive dining establishment. He has rented the entire restaurant and they are dining alone in a huge room with musicians playing for them alone.
The girl comments about how odd it is to be dining in such an enormous room without other diners present.
I won't spoil it for you by giving his quote that makes this scene so wonderful. He says something that is one of my all time favorite movie quotes.
He is a charming personality and I would have liked for him to make other film appearances. He could have been like a Burl Ives character who could have made movies that were not musicals as well as operatic films.
