The golden age of movies saw the rise of such screen stars as Clark Gable, Jimmy Stewart, Spenser Tracy, Myrna Loy...and perhaps the most charming screen couple of them all, Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy. From Naughty Marietta through Rose Marie and Sweethearts (book by Dorothy Parker), their beautiful voices and electrifying chemistry on-screen made millions of dollars for Louis B. Mayer and MGM and enthralled many millions of idolatrous moviegoers.
While MacDonald and Eddy drew fans from around the world to see their fictional love affair, their off-screen romance, revealed here for the first time, was equally if not more intense and dramatic.
Sweethearts, including index and filmography, is the complete story of two screen legends as they topped the charts at the height of Hollywood's triumph. It is also an exciting and timeless romance, rarely equaled in any work of fiction. Lavishly illustrated with dozens of studio stills and photographs from personal collections, many of them never before shown, Sweethearts is based on interviews with scores of close friends and associates, including Irene Dunne, Myrna Loy, Eleanor Powell, Ronald Reagan and many more, with an original introduction by Nelson Eddy's son, Jon Eddy.
