whoops.  double mistake.  yes indeed, Mary Martin.  I stand corrected.
The album at my age of 5 years wore out a few needles on our phonograph.
The reason I thought Pinza was in the film was because the album cover of 
course had him as the deep tenor (I think actually he may have been a baritone).

I do seem to remember some intrigue my parents wouldn't explain to me as to 
why MM didn't get the film role and MG did...
Since it was 47 years ago I forgive myself :-)
