RIP, Sir Carl, a comedy legend and a truly kind man!
Nelson Eddy and Jeanette MacDonald were proud Americans and each worked tirelessly and bravely in their own way to help support the country they loved.
The artwork above was done by Vonnie Krotts…we remember her fondly today during this day of celebration.
Happy birthday, Nelson Eddy! Movie star, opera and concert star, WWII spy and off-screen lover of Jeanette MacDonald. “Our marriage, to me, is a thing of such dignity and beauty that its lovely nights of sweet passion are a glorious string of pearls sent by the angels to bless us and I shall love you through all eternity.” From his diary entry dated March 26, 1946.
