Oh yeah Mario!
7 July 2019 | by susanhudek53See all my reviews

This movie is really cheesy and has some really bad acting. Its's a pleasure to see Gina so young, and she's the second reason to watch this. The primary reason is the stunning, gorgeous singing of the late great Mario Del Monaco. In my humble opinion he is one of the greatest artists from the golden age of opera. He's the reason to watch this silly movie
