Shop by the Stars aisle featuring Jeanette MacDonald (1903-1965) vintage movie cards, still photos, ephemera, and other collectibles.

Beloved screen soprano born in Philadelphia, PA, saw her older sister perform in New York and soon followed, landing her own chorus job there in 1919. MacDonald's rise took a few years, ascending from the chorus to second leads, and finally Broadway leads by 1927. She was courted for screen work and ultimately cast by director Ernst Lubitsch in Paramount's The Love Parade (1929), her debut film, and the first of four opposite Maurice Chevalier, heading a list followed by One Hour with You (1932), Love Me Tonight (1932), and MGM's remake of The Merry Widow (1934). Her first for MGM had been The Cat and the Fiddle (1934), and McDonald later scored a hit for the studio alongside Clark Gable and Spencer Tracy in San Francisco (1936), but it was Naughty Marietta (1935) that teamed her with Nelson Eddy and marked the first of eight screen pairings of the great romantic team through 1942. Together they lit up the screen in titles including Rose-Marie (1936), Maytime (1937), and Sweethearts (1938). In the 1940s, MacDonald left the movies to train for opera and made her grand opera debut at His Majesty's Theatre in Montreal, 1943. Her final film was The Sun Comes Up (1949), a charming Lassie entry for MGM. In the 1950s, MacDonald made some television appearances and performed in night clubs and summer stock. Chronic heart trouble caught up to MacDonald when she collapsed during a performance of The King and I in 1956, an incident that curtailed her work thereafter. The older sister MacDonald had followed to New York all those years ago is best remembered billed as Blossom Rock when she appeared on television's The Addams Family in the 1960s. MacDonald was married to actor Gene Raymond from 1937 until her death in 1965. They appeared together in Smilin' Through (1941).
