Maurice was the first of Jeanette's co-stars and
stared in the most movies with Jeanette bar Nelson Eddy. Four films - five if you include the french version of The
Merry Widow were done together. These were all Pre-code and Pre-Eddy films and many involved Jeanette in negligees.
Their last film together, The Merry Widow, did not have that as a costume option.
Frank was often in the films as a secondary
character, often the comic relief. He was the oddball Governor Gaspard d'Annard in Naughty Marietta, the
play producer Felix Lehman in Sweethearts, Cornelius Collier Jr in Broadway Serenade. And
of course...he is the Wizard of Oz!
How can you talk about Jeanette without mentioning
Nelson Eddy? They stared in eight films together, some of which have been historic (how many films have replicated the
Indian Love Call?). Their movies ranged from westerns (Girl of the Golden West) to historicals (Naughty
Marietta, New Moon, Bittersweet, I married an Angel) to romances (Rosemarie, Maytime, Sweethearts).
They had wonderful chemestry together and often have gotten fans from the other. They are forever America's Sweethearts.
Not only was he her leading man on screen in Smilin' Though
he was her husband. They were married in 1937 and were married till her death in 1965. Gene went to Jeanette's
Fanclub meetings till his own death in 1998

happens to be related to actors Drew Berrymore and Lionel Berrymore (who stared as Nelson Eddy's father in Let Freedom
Spencer was another star in San Francisco,
