The Great Caruso
The Great Caruso (1951)

Starring: Mario Lanza, Ann Blyth, Dorothy Kirsten, Ludwig Donath
Director: Richard Thorpe

This movie can truly be called life-changing. It certainly changed my life; I was quite ignorant of opera before a chance viewing of the film on television introduced me to this greatest of all musical genres. As it turned out, I was in illustrious company! For the number of singers inspired by this movie includes many of the biggest operatic stars... (See the whole review)

The Toast of New Orleans
The Toast of New Orleans (1950)

Starring: Kathryn Grayson, Mario Lanza, David Niven, J. Carrol Naish
Director: Norman Taurog

The fun movie of Mario, he looks relaxed and he seems to be enjoying himself. Kathryn is his best co-star, she is beautiful and sings magnificently, and nothing to say about Mario, he sings nice songs and Be my Love duet when first singing it at Bayou Minou is just great, and what about Madame Butterfly duet, we "see" Mario's feelings, he sings fro...

Schoolhouse Rock!
Schoolhouse Rock! (1973)

I don't think anyone who ever saw the original Schoolhouse Rock cartoons on Saturday mornings can ever forget them... I know I can't.  From "Conjunction Junction" to "I'm Just a Bill" and "Interjections", the advertising executives who got together to make this series, beginning with "Three Is a Magic Number" proved that learning doesn't have to ta...

An American in Paris
An American in Paris (1951)

Starring: Gene Kelly
Director: Vincente Minnelli

Lots of singing, lots of dancing, lots of fun. The sense of life of Gershwin's music, the brilliantly colourful ballet scene and the radiant Gene Kelly make this is a classic.

Pink Floyd
Pink Floyd's The Wall (1982)

Starring: Bob Geldof
Director: Alan Parker

I don't care what anybody says; this film is a brilliantly honest testimony to what life is like for a person who lacks a vigorous, core philosophy with which to defend against an oppressive, dehumanizing society that worships mindless traditionalism and conformity.
