Marianne de Beaumanoir:
Look, they're going to the "Trouble Tree."
Charles Duc de Villiers:
The "Trouble Tree?"
Marianne de Beaumanoir:
Yes. It's an old jungle superstition. The magnolia is an enchanted tree. Look! One by one now they'll stroke the trunk, each one chanting his trouble. The tree is supposed to take away their sorrows, grant their longings, bring back their loved ones.

This movie is lighthearted and a joy to be "lost in" for an evening. The music and singing perfectly complimented an intricate plot. The quality of Nelson Eddy's and Jeanette McDonald's is incredible, and they take you from the depths of sadness and loss to triumph and joyful reunion throughout the show. Nelson Eddy is as dashing and handsome as any leading man in the 21st century, and Jeanette McDonald's beauty is unrivaled. Both have central roles in a plot that twists and turns, and play them well, intelligently, believably. All the supporting cast is enthusiastic and funny, and add to the energy and drive of the story. The story is clean and innocent which was very refreshing. At the same time it is compelling, engaging and will remain in one's mind for days afterward. A wonderful surprise of a movie, one that I will keep in my movie library for years to come.
