Gorgeous pix, Armand Duval!


Oh My God!!!!!!!! You haven't seen ALL of them! How I envy you. Do you have some great viewing in store! They only made 8 films (2 in Technicolor) and I'm sure you'll find something to like in each.


MAYTIME seems to be the general public favorite, followed closely by ROSE MARIE.

SWEETHEARTS was their first "modern" dress movie and is a Technicolor knockout.

BITTERSWEET is the other color film - based on the Noel Coward play. He hated the film with a passion (and of course, Hollywood changed it around a bit).

NEW MOON is their most sumptuous costume film (after MAYTIME) and has some glorious music (Sigmund Romberg)

I MARRIED AN ANGEL, their last, is not popular with most MacEddy fans (but not me, for it introduced them to me when I was 12)..but Nelson is so debonair and Jeanette is radiant as the titular heavenly visitor.

You're welcome. SWEETHEARTS is quite a departure (but a pleasant one!) from the MacEddy operetta films. Great music by Victor Herbert and a fun supporting cast including FRANK MORGAN, MISCHA AUER, HERMAN BING, FLORENCE RICE..and the color is out of this world.
