Movie Info

Golden-throated Mario Lanza stars in Because You're Mine. Lanza plays opera singer Renaldo Rossano, who is drafted into the army. Much to the displeasure of topkick Sgt. Batterson (James Whitmore), Renaldo is given celebrity treatment even while in uniform. Even more problematic is the romance between Renaldo and Batterson's sister, Bridget (Doretta Morrow, fresh from her Broadway success as Tuptim in +The King and I). Wait till you see the "dueling tenors" scene between Whitmore and Lanza! For the benefit of those not operatically inclined, Because You're Mine features a gratuitous dance solo by Bobby Van.

Critic Reviews for Because You're Mine

All Critics (1)

Mario Lanza's fourth picture, in which he plays a singer drafted into the army, is not one of his best but is pleasant enough.

Audience Reviews for Because You're Mine

This is a nice war musical, it's also a romantic comedy, and Lanza sings a lot. If you're a fan of his, you'll like this movie.

The plot is nothing special but Lanza is in fine voice.
