Just an OT comment. This was Lauritz Melchior, perhaps the greatest 
Wagnerian tenor ever, who along with Robert Merrill was banished from the 
Metropolitan opera by that A...H.... Metropolitan Opera's General Manager 
Rudolf Bing. Merrill for having the gall to appear in a Hollywood film and I 
believe Melchior for the same reason.
