Don't know if anyone remembers the old Tony Randall Show, but it had a
recurring character named Mario Lanza. The joke was that he had no idea
there was another Mario Lanza.

"I'd like you to meet Mario Lanza."
"Any relation?"
"To whom?"

Sorry, Bob

Occasionally I disagree with you. This is one of those times.

Student Prince the movie desecrated Student Prince the operetta. Almost
nothing in the film resembles anything in the operetta. The Prince is turned
into a cad who is very hard to like. The important role of Dr. Engels is all
but eliminated. The beautiful serenade changes from an ensemble to a solo.
There's much more but it's been quite a while since I've seen it so that's
all I can remember. I thoroughly dislike this movie despite Lanza's singing.
