At the time,concerts were luxury and there was no TV.The only way for the fans to see their idol perform his songs "live" was the movies.So most of TIno Rossi's were musicals where he sang a little song every ten minutes:six or seven here in total;The best of the lot is perhaps "Madame la Lune" with nice backing vocals.
Tino portrays an exhausted singer who hits the road with a tramp and winds up on a barge ,while working as a lumberjack (a special way to have a rest ).The barge's owner has a daughter Marilou.Shall I have to carry on with the story? Ten years later ,singer Georges Guétary starred in a film the script of which was similar: a singer sick and tired of everyone and everything heads for the Cote D'azur incognito of course where he meets a girl ;the movie is aptly called "une Fille Sur La Route"
