Victor Herbert's Naughty Marietta( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The musical that launched a legendary team. With their splendid voices, matinee-idol looks, vivacity (she) and stoutheartedness (he), Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy were America's Singing Sweethearts, "a true team, mixing the chemistry that permits one to accept disguised princesses, dream melodies and beautiful doom" (Ethan Mordden, The Hollywood Musical). Naughty Marietta is their first film together, a blithe tale of a French princess who arrives incognito in colonial New Orleans and falls into the manly arms of a captain with one terrific baritone. The soaring Victor Herbert melodies -- including Ah Sweet Mystery of Life and Tramp, Tramp, Tramp -- became forever identified with the stars. This 1935 Best Picture Academy Award nominee and Oscar winner for Best Sound Recording remains a Hollywood milestone and a total delight. - Container
