Notes & Reviews:

The baritone Afro Polis was born in Pisa in 1902. His voice had neither an unusually big sound nor a particularly beautiful timbre. Nevertheless, he was a great actor and performer and extremely musical. Poli appeared in a large number of opera films that were in fashion at the time.
