Italian Love Song

Fortunato 'Ezio' Pinza was born in Rome, Italy, and by 1943 he was a star singer in the Metropolitan Opera. In 1950 he rose to motion picture fame in the blockbuster hit 'South Pacific,' winning a Tony award. One year later, in 1951, he teams with blonde bombshell Lana Turner in this epic romantic drama. In this adventure Lana Turner is a cabaret singer in Italy and falls in love with 'Al' who turns out to be Prince Alexis, who will soon become the King of his European country. Ah, but movie love must never run smooth, so we have evil Prime Minister Bernand, played by the eminent Cedric Hardwicke, who contrives to convince Lana Turner that the Prince has tossed her to the curb like a worn out toy. Many years pass and Lana Turner becomes a great Hollywood movie star, and Prince Alexis, now King Alexis, discovers her and immediately flies to California to be reunited with her. After a wonderful weekend in Palm Springs the King is determined to abdicate the throne and join Lana Turner, but the evil Prime Minister Bernand is still around with his deceitful ways. SPOILER ALERT: If you don't want to learn about too much more, stop here and head to the kitchen to pop a bowl of popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter on it. . . . . Gone now? . . . Good . . . . This romantic drama does NOT end the way lovers of romance will enjoy . . . .
