Journal #77 released!
At long last, Mac/Eddy Today Issue #77 is available! It includes: a new look at The Girl of the Golden West as it passed its 80th anniversary; an article about the death of Gale Sherwood, Nelson’s nightclub singing partner for 14 years, and her significance in the latter years of the lives of both Nelson and Jeanette; an interview with June Caldwell, the last secretary of director Woody Van Dyke. Caldwell worked for him to the end, helped plan and attended his funeral and so as an eyewitness, sets the record straight on the exact participation made by Nelson and Jeanette; and the rest of Anna MacDonald’s 1931 diary, which gives a very clear picture of how a movie star’s mother (and stage mother) spent her days in Hollywood as her daughter worked. All these articles are filled with rare photos (including some of the last public photos taken of Jeanette) and the magazine is printed on glossy paper with gorgeous centerfold portraits of each star.
You can order the magazine now at this link. Enjoy!

Thank you for keeping these two wonderful people alive. I love them and their movies give me such joy! I came across them on TCM channel on 7/15/2021. As I wacthed Maytime over and over agian I realized that I have seen the movie before; however, at the time it didn’t catch my attention. Now the older me ( in my mid 50’s) have fallen in Love with Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy!
