Product Details

Tenor supreme Mario Lanza and crime writer James M. Cain might seem like an odd pairing at first brush, but Cain's interest and regard for opera may be found throughout his prose output. Not surprisingly, as Cain was the son of an opera singer. Anthony Mann helms this adaptation of Cain's 1937 novel, the tale of a humble lad whose soaring voice leads him to the lap of high society without preparing him for the female predators that await. Full of pitch-perfect classic oratorios sung by Lanza, the film is further enhanced by a supporting cast of players that includes Joan Fontaine, Sara Montiel, Vincent Price and Black Zoo's Ed Platt.
