Here's a video of Connie Francis performing Al Di La:

Those are both fantastic performances. Unable to say one is better than the other. The Connie Francis video is clearer though--the Betty Curtis video is a bit fuzzy in comparison. It's very nice when the b/w videos are crisp and clear.

Sure would love to find this performance in full (and with a clear picture--this you can barely make out--a 1956 San Remo performance I think):

These two videos go together really well:

Very interesting Connie Francis Wiki page. It goes on to explain Valerie Bertinelli was considered to play Connie Francis in a film. That might have worked. Sheila sure strikes a resemblance in some way.

Wow. Found an excellent Dizzy Gillespie track through Connie Francis videos...

Dizzy Gillespie - Siboney (Trumpet)

video by c3000u

One of the Connie Francis videos explains below it that Siboney was the location of the farm where Fidel castro and men gathered at start of Cuban Revolution. Connie Francis sings the song excellently (although granted I don't know what the words mean). Remember seeing a film about Dizzy Gillespie and that he often traveled/played in Cuba. Very much enjoyed his performance at Elliot Bay Jazz Festival in Seattle in 1987 (or 88, 89, 90?).

Connie Francis - Siboney is so very beautiful sounding...it immediately shot to the top of my all-time favorite songs. Her voice at the end is superb. So wonderful. Brings to mind 'One Eyed Jacks' w/Marlon Brando. Had thought a while back that Gigliola Cinquetti's 'Dio Come Ti Amo' would have worked well in the film. Both songs would have been good...the scene on the beach is one of the best.

Here is a video of one of their scenes on the beach (this one is good, yet there is another I like even better when she tries to get him to forgive after being kept in that hole in the ground for four years I think it was)

Real good too--looks like Spanish and Latin American songs may have been her specialty--hard to know yet, only recently began viewing her videos:
