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.
