MacDonald became pregnant. She was a successful, lucrative actress and was about to have a baby, unmarried. A baby if, Louis B. Mayer could help it, she would never have.

I believe last winter they devoted an entire month to the team. Bitter Sweet will be shown on November 4, I watched 2 Jeanette MacDonald films last night. I had recorded them off of TCM in He is a budding composer and they move to his hometown of Vienna, Austria.
The screenplay was based on a play by Noel Coward. According to Robert Osborne, Coward didn't like the screen adaptation, but the film did very well at the box office. He was the quintessential cad, as always. He looked quite dashing in uniform! MacDonald looks gorgeous in the film--the technicolor shows off her blue eyes and red hair.
In one scene, she wears a peach silk gown that makes her skin look glowing. BUT, at the end of the film, she is performing in an opera and is wearing a perfectly hideous giant headdress, beaded necklace and hoop-skirted gown.
The whole number has costumes and settings in cream and chocolate brown, which is interesting, but Jeanette's costume is strange. Again, MacDonald looks radiant in technicolor. It's not really a musical, in that only MacDonald sings. Good film, although Raymond and MacDonald don't really have much chemistry onscreen.
Her scenes with Brian Aherne are better. Yep, have seen them both and will completely agree with your assessment of each. If you haven't seen any of these I highly recommend them. Sandy - in the film Smiling Through there is a song Miss MacDonald sings while sitting in a rowboat which was my late mom's favorite "Just a Little Love, A Little Kiss" it's now mine and I have it Jeanette MacDonald - Americas Singing Sweethearts (Vinyl and play it every morning I guess that she was more of an opera star and that's why she didn't make more films?
Either way, I found her to be lovely in voice and appearance. I wonder why MacDonald didn't make this film with Eddy? Dir: Ernst Lubitsch. The response I generally receive is that there's much restoration work to be done on these titles to make them ready for DVD and as a result they keep getting pushed back further and further on Warner's list of things to do. Selznick catalogues. That's a lot of movies!
Where to begin and what to preserve - especially when so many of the 20th century's early filmic masterworks are in great danger of decomposition. I always seem to get more action that way. Rose-Marie - Nelson Eddy love Willie the Opera Singing Whale, but that's about it.
I had never seen any of the films from their heydey, just clips, Rose-Marie - Nelson Eddy I had seen some of their movies without each other. Maybe a long time ago I saw one of their later movies, but all in all, I never really got it. I read with fascination, but then chalked it up as just Rose-Marie - Nelson Eddy scandal mongering author trying to make a buck. The baritone from Providence, R. They made seven more musicals for MGM that contained a winning formula of lavish sets and costumes, a wholesome love story, and, most importantly, Eddy and MacDonald belting out tunes at the top of their lungs.
Those films have a more modern style of music than the operettas favored by Eddy and MacDonald and their wisecracking style make them feel much fresher that the costume dramas that were Eddy and MacDonald's bread and butter. Still, there's a lot to like about The Singing Sweethearts' filmography, especially MGM's always first rate production values the beautiful MacDonald never looked less than stunning in Adrian's elaborate creations and the fact that both Eddy and MacDonald were classically trained singers who could handle difficult arias with skill and grace.
With that in mind, here's my list of the top five Eddy-MacDonald musical numbers. This lyrical love song from the operetta is Eddy and MacDonald's best-known duet. It's certainly been much parodied -- even those who haven't seen any classic movies are probably familiar with the "when I'm calling you-ooo-ooo" first line -- but in the context of the movie, the song has a certain haunting power.
It's used a total of three times in the movie, but never more effectively than in the lakeside scene above.
