Jeanette MacDonald, One Of My Favorite Starlettes Of Yester-year

 I think not only was she very pretty, but what a voice…She could sing on and on and onnnnnnnnnn.. This was a time when America was great. Great talent, gorgeous stars that were patriotic, unlike todays Sean Penn type slime.

Jeanette MacDonald (June 18, 1903 – January 14, 1965) was an American singer and actress best remembered for her musical films of the 1930s with Maurice Chevalier (Love Me Tonight, The Merry Widow) and Nelson Eddy (Naughty Marietta, Rose-Marie, and Maytime). During the 1930s and 1940s she starred in 29 feature films, four nominated for Best Picture Oscars (The Love Parade, One Hour With You, Naughty Marietta and San Francisco), and recorded extensively, earning three gold records. She later appeared in grand opera, concerts, radio, and television. MacDonald was one of most influential sopranos of the 20th century, introducing grand opera to movie-going audiences and inspiring a generation of singers.

  1. My favorite of all her songs is Indian Love Call and then New Moon… sighhhhhhhhh . She and Nelson Eddie together singing, always made my heart flutter. :-))

  2. Spamblinka incogman. He’s a fraud. The idled minded and addled old fart and his fellating followers begged for you to come back, so they wouldn’t have to suffer their own boring selves. He should do what other washed up old men do and say he’s 16 in chatrooms to meet little girls. And DO note who is NOT posting. Incogman is one bogus asshole. Hasbara this and hasbara that. That’s just what they are. I went there looking for intelligent input about something and none of them knew jack about it. They’re idiots there. I repent of my opinion of white patriot though. I had him pegged all wrong. Incogman has chased off any intelligence there ever may have been there, and will continue doing it. Stop being the entertainment of people so boring, they just can’t stand it.

  3. Don’t forget one of the original beauties, “Indian Love Call,” the hit song from ROSEMARIE (1936), with Nelson Eddy.

    Jeanette really did have a classical operatic voice, but, not quite the big time. Operetta, music theatre, and of course, movies.

    Check out ROSEMARIE! Beautiful Canadian Indian land story (with little to do with Indians, of course, and one of the very worst depictions of Indians in the movies…)

  4. I would do well to read more carefully the entire blog, huh?! Sorry.
    Thanks for including my mother’s favorite song. (My mother passed away in 2005, at 83.)

  5. Rosemarie is my FAVORITE. I liked that Indian dance, I would LOL b/c it was so hysterical. No, not ‘bigtime opera’ but what a voice that went ON AND ON. Nelson Eddie too- LOVED him!
