  1. “Rose Marie” on TCM! Haven’t watched a Mac-Eddy film in years, mostly because of him…although one shouldn’t be too hard on poor Nelson. He was an opera singer sent to do a movie star’s job–his roles required him to sing AND be Errol Flynn, and he could only sing.

    But Jeanette…! You need to check out her earlier work–she is one of the cinema’s most delightful musical comedy actresses. Start with “Love Me Tonight” where she is paired her her frequent pre-Nelson co-star, Maurice Chevalier (score by Rodgers and Hart, no less) and continue on to her Ernst Lubistch musicals, also with Chevalier. Racy pre-Code fun!
