Storyline

Jeanette MacDonald's film career is probably best known for her lyrical singing voice. She seemed destined for stardom, even at an early age, as the camera loved her. She started her professional career on Broadway in musical theater. In such productions, she was known primarily as a dancer. She was quickly lured to Hollywood in the early talkie era to star in movie musicals. Her role in The Lottery Bride (1930) would lead to a meeting with opera star Lily Pons, the two would would become friends with and admirers of each other. MGM was the studio which cast her with the person with who she would be forever linked: Nelson Eddy. They were always cast as singing sweethearts. Following her professional association with Eddy, she would instead focus on making public appearances, she being one of the first Hollywood stars to perform for the troops during WWII. Following her permanent retirement from acting in movies, she led a busy life as Mrs. Gene Raymond. Written by Huggo
