Mario Lanza – Because You’re Mine

Mario Lanza – Because You’re Mine –

Because You’re Mine is a 1952 musical comedy film starring Mario Lanza. Directed by Alexander Hall, the film also stars Doretta Morrow, James Whitmore, and Dean Miller.

The title song of Because You’re Mine earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song. It was written by Sammy Cahn and Nicholas Brodszky and became Lanza’s third and final million-selling effort.

Musical highlights in the film included “Granada”, “The Lord’s Prayer”, and “Addio, Addio” from Rigoletto.

Upon its release, Because You’re Mine was criticized as being a step backwards artistically for Lanza after the success of The Great Caruso (1951) the previous year. Nevertheless, it was chosen for the inaugural Royal Command Film Performance of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign, and was a solid box office success.

Writing in The New York Times, Bosley Crowther criticised the banality of the film’s plot, but went on to observe that, “It’s really Mario Lanza’s singing that should and will attract attention to this technicolored film.” It was the fifth most popular movie at the British box office in 1953.
