Naughty Marietta by Christine
 

Date: 15 October 2001
Summary: The Singing Sweethearts Are United

This is the first film that paired Nelson Eddy and Jeanette MacDonald. It is probably the best and favorite of most fans. The stars look devine, the music is beautiful, and surprisingly, there is a lot humor, and witty playfulness. The chemistry between the two is awesome and quite obvious. The duet of Sweet Mystery of Life was the first of their many sucesses, and Nelson's solo of Neath The Southern Moon is quite sexy for 1935 films. A rare gem

Sweethearts by Christine

Date: 13 October 2001
Summary: Nelson & Jeanette as themselves/

Sweethearts was the first color film for Nelson & Jeanette, and they, and the film are quite beautiful.They portray a married couple, appearing in musical comedy. This shows Nelson at his most playful--the "Pretty as A Picture" duet was so personal, I thought I was privy to a private moment between them. Too bad, MGM never took advantage of Nelson's self depreciating talent, but this film is most interesting, because it gives us a fascinating glimpse of what might have been.
