|I may have written this before but it deserves another highlight - - -
Vic Damone shines, not only as a singer's singer with accomplishments
in on radio, TV, supper clubs, concert tours, but also the `big screen'.
Many of us are well-acquainted with Vic's tunes - albums - singles, but
are you aware that Mr. Damone made a number of Musical Comedy movies
in which he appeared with some of the greatest musical talents.
Vic played opposite to such leading ladies as Ann Blyth, Jane Powell,
Debbie Reynolds, to name a few in movies such as "Hit the Deck",
"Kismet", "Athena", "Rich, Young and Pretty", "Deep in My Heart" & still other films.
Those Fantastic Fifties productions that gave you that light-as-air,
good-to-be-alive-feeling also shows off other Vic Damone talents as
singer-actor. It may be a treat for some of you younger Damone fans.
He lights up the screen ( at least for me ) with his luscious barritone
voice - like a fine wine, the older, the better - and brings a romantic,
continental quality to all those musicals! Whenever, you want to get
away from it all ..... indulge yourself and let's remember, MGM never had it so good !
A few places you can find some of these DVD's and videos are:
