The Singing Sweethearts Are United, 15 October 2001
Author: kinder-1 from United States

This is the first film that paired Nelson Eddy and Jeanette MacDonald. It is probably the best and favorite of most fans. The stars look devine, the music is beautiful, and surprisingly, there is a lot humor, and witty playfulness. The chemistry between the two is awesome and quite obvious. The duet of Sweet Mystery of Life was the first of their many sucesses, and Nelson's solo of Neath The Southern Moon is quite sexy for 1935 films. A rare gem.
