Jeanette MacDonald Nelson Eddy
What would you do if you were a very famous movie star, in love with your on-screen co-star...but your studio boss and even your mother didn't like him! Your studio boss ruled your career and threatened to drop your contract if you ran off and eloped. No other studio would hire you...So if you had to choose between love and your career, which would you choose?
That was the problem facing singer Jeanette MacDonald in the 1930s. She and her co-star Nelson Eddy made 8 films together at MGM and were the most famous international singing stars of their day. Their movies were in the top ten box office for three years. They were secretly engaged and wanted to marry...but when Jeanette listened to her boss and married someone else, she lived to regret her decision. Within a few years Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy vanished from the Hollywood scene, carrying on a secret love affair all the rest of their lives.
