THE STUDENT PRINCE
Featuring vocals by Mario Lanza
When his bride-to-be finds him too stiff, heir to the throne Prince Karl is sent off to the university in Heidelberg to learn how to socialise. He makes friends with the students there and falls for the down-to-earth Kathie, a barmaid. The two are soul mates, but when Karl’s grandfather the king falls ill, he must choose between his country and his own happiness.
This regal Hollywood adaptation of Sigmund Romberg’s operetta stars Edmund Purdom (lip-syncing the rich singing voice of tenor Mario Lanza) and Ann Blyth.
