Golden Age Singer of the Week--Lauritz Melchior

Surprise!  It's not another soprano!  This is the first time I've featured heldentenor Lauritz Melchior (1890-1973).  Don't know why that is.  In any case, his Wikipedia bio is pretty thorough for an online source.

So let's get on with the YouTube clips!

Here he is in the 1948 MGM film Luxury Liner.
He made several such films.

Singing on an unspecified TV show, probably in the 50s.

Ora e per sempre from Otello, no performance data given.
