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.

New Moon is filled with great music and lyrics. Nelson Eddy's fine looks and body language will turn on the ladies in my opinion. Only in hindsight of the full collection of their movies I found this movie looking like a training ground for both actors. However their embraces and smiles at times told me they enjoyed each others company. For a while many thought of them as lovers outside the films. I have often commented to my wife in saying "How could you not fall in love with a leading lady like Jeanette MacDonald singing those wonderful songs." I would highly recommend "New Moon" and all other of their movies. My favorite is The Girl of the Golden West.
