Both Nelson and Jeanette were patriots and contributed heavily to the WWII war effort. But just before that, Nelson started in “Let Freedom Ring”, a story close to his heart. Originally they were scheduled to star together in this film as a sequel to “Naughty Marietta” in 1935! Great message, no overdone makeup, gorgeous voice, gorgeous hair. No Jeanette but the patriot in Nelson loved this and it’s one of his best solo films.
On June 29th, the 122nd anniversary of Nelson Eddy’s birth, some excerpts from an article in Progress Magazine, March 1937. “I want to live a good life gracefully, a life as nearly as possible in harmony with the universe, with life, with the Creator. I want to help others do the same. I want to seek and welcome the truth, no matter through whom it comes or how many times I am compelled to lay aside preconceived opinions. I want to do what good I can as I go along. I want to bring cheer, comfort or inspiration to someone every day. I want to find my own soul and fulfill my own destiny by using the capabilities that I find within myself.”
