Jeanette MacDonald ~ Nelson Eddy

Jeanette Anna MacDonald was born in Philadelphia, PA 18 JUN 1903
Died, Houston 14 JAN 1965.
She began her stage career as a chorus girl in 1917, appearing in minor roles in musicals during the 1920s. MacDonald's first starring role was in Yes, Yes, Yvette in 1927. She appeared with Nelson Eddy in such films as Naughty Marietta (1935), Rose Marie (1936), Sweethearts (1938) and New Moon (1940). In 1942, she left films to sing in concerts and the radio. She also had a brief operatic career in 1943 and appeared with Ezio Pinza in Gounod's Roméo et Juliette in Montreal. Her only other operatic role was as 'Marguerite' in Faust with the Chicago Civic Opera and Cincinnati Summer Opera the following year. MacDonald married actor and composer Gene Raymond, whose songs she performed in her concert programs.

Nelson Eddy was born in Providence RI 29 JUN 1901
Died, Miami Beach, FL 6 MAR 1967
His parents were both singers, and always remarked that singing was the only career he ever contemplated. He studied in Dresden and Paris before performing his first concert recital in Philadelphia in 1928. He continued performing in opera, oratorios, concerts and radio over the next few years, and in 1933 MGM executive Louis B. Mayer was impressed enough to sign him up for films.
