Hey, Mario.I was there in 1958 when you

RAN out of the tent on "Trahison." You KNEW 

it was a broadcast so you sang to the mikes!

The two of them looked better than Victor Mature

and Hedy Lamar.

   First singer I ever saw (1951)…..first of 40 times.

I recall "white teeth" coming toward me in Aida,

my first opera ever.  He was a GOD!!!!!!!!

Huge voice from bottom to top.A "bronze column of

sound"..Unforgettable man!  Came out stage door

once and said, "Hello,boys" in my poor ear. I

never recovered!!!!!
