Trivia

MGM's original intention was to film in Technicolor and to star Grace Moore. If these plans had gone through, this would have been MGM's first feature-length Technicolor film. However, Moore decided to pass on the film, Jeanette MacDonald was cast, photography switched to black-and-white, and this film became one of the biggest musical successes in MGM's history.

After the store clerk (Lucien Littlefield) tells Marie (Jeanette MacDonald) to go to the Mounted Police she wanders through the village and sees a poster stating that her brother Jack (James Stewart) is wanted for murder. The poster gives Jack's height as 6'1". Shortly afterwards, she again sees a copy of the poster listing his height as 6'1". Shortly after that she sees a third poster where Jack's height is listed as 5'8". (James Stewart was actually 6'3" tall.) See more »

that indian love call thing ...

Yep, this is the most saccharine of all the films made by the 'singing sweethearts'. And its perfect. Despite the low production values evident in Nelson's 1st number in the film, The Mounties, it soon settles into a nice two hour wallow where Jeanette chirps through Juliet's love song, gets scared in the woods, and falls for the cutie mountie (but of course, who wouldn't after he sang the title tune so sweetly during a boat ride). Great stuff. Those of you expecting to see James Stewart though have a long wait as most of the time is spent trying to find him! And who could resist that timeless song 'when I'm calling you'? Sweet.
