Nelson and the Russians
31 March 2004 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

In his last effort on the big screen Nelson Eddy turned to a familiar Russian theme that he previously used in Balalaika and in The Chocalate Soldier. Unfortunately Rudolf Friml did not provide him with any particularly memorable songs, in fact the best number is Weary, sung by the prisoners during their labor.

After Jeanette MacDonald, Ilona Massey was his best known co-star and both are ably supported by Elsa Lanchester and Joseph Schildkraut.

The plot is a bit hard to take. I think Martin Van Buren was one far thinking president to send Nelson Eddy out to ingratiate himself with the Russian colonists at Fort Ross. Unfortunately there is absolutely nothing in the history books about this mission.

It would have been better to just make Nelson a Russian. Not like he hadn't played one before.
