John McCormack: The People's Tenor

Director:  Cast: John McCormack

DVD (Black & White)


Something of a rarity - an early 20th century vocalist who effortlessly traversed the boundaries between classical and pop music with great aplomb - Irish-American tenor vocalist John McCormack (1884-1945) sold an estimated 200 million records and consistently packed concert halls to the brim. The documentary John McCormack: The People's Tenor profiles the life and times of this once-great superstar, from his childhood as the son of an Irish millworker, to his 1904 vocal performances at the St. Louis World's Fair and his tutelage under the mentorship of Vincenzo Sabatini in Italy.
