Images of Caruso on film

What a fellow he must have been. He and Gigli are the voices from the past tenor days I would love to have blended with. Huge heart and so much natural color and talent. The fun mischief in his eyes.

As he leans forward in the first images, imagine meeting him!

In his different roles, you can see an honest and straightforward quality to his gaze, a truth.

The second clip is from a remastered recroding of his, that if you were to ask me how I thought he sounded live it would be like this. Just my guess of course, too bad I never heard him live.
