They were “America’s Singing Sweethearts” of the 1930s. They starred in classic movies like Naughty Marietta, Rose Marie, Maytime, New Moon, in live opera, on radio and in early television… And yes, Virginia, they did have an off-screen romance but because of MGM studio boss Louis B. Mayer, were never allowed a legal U.S. marriage. If you are already a fan of Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy or are just discovering them – Welcome!
Greetings! I’m wrapping up the next Mac/Eddy Today magazine in the next day or two and taking a look back at the 40 years – yes, 40 YEARS! – of our club’s existence. A few of you here have been with us for most or all of those decades….while some of you are newer friends. We’re all here because of our admiration for two very special people. If you would like to write something about them, what they mean to you, how their story has affected you, what this club has meant to you and/or anything else you’d like to say or share…please email it to me ASAP or post a comment here. We’ll have a special “Letters to the Editor” feature in the magazine and your input would be greatly appreciated. Be as brief or lengthy as you like! Sharon
