Yes, Giorgio ★★ 1982 (PG)
Opera singer Pavarotti in his big-screen debut. He has an advantage over other non-actors trapped in similar situations (e.g., Hulk Hogan): He can sing (but of course, not wrestle). Lame plot (famous opera star falls for lady doctor) is the merest excuse for the maestro to belt out “If We Were in Love,” “I Left My Heart in San Francisco,” and arias by Verdi, Donizetti, and Puccini. 111m/C VHS . Luciano Pavarotti, Kathryn Harrold, Eddie Albert, James Hong; D: Franklin J. Schaffner; W: Norman Steinberg; M: John Williams.
