    in New York City 1963.
    From his gloves and overcoat you can tell there's a nip in the air. Müren was taking a tour of 5th Avenue and because he wasn't well known in the States, there isn't a crowd around him. A few minutes later, he was to enter the movie theater in the background, to watch Cleopatra -- which starred the then-world famous lovers Liz Taylor and Richard Burton. Before entering the theater, Müren posed for this nostalgic photo in front of the marquee.
