Christie replied to Dr. Vanessa Theme Ament's topic in MAD ABOUT MUSICALS: THE HISTORY OF THE HOLLYWOOD MUSICALSMy mother was a teenager when these films were made. Rose Marie was her favorite. Mom would go around our house singing their songs. I am sure see saw every one of their movies and my sister and I have seen most of them. My reflection is about why Mom loved them so much. As a teen in a poor family, I think their movies not only offered her a way to escape but touched that place in a young girl with dreams of love. Nelson Eddy always brought a strength with tender love that could give a young girl at that time the hope that a man will fall in love with her.
