5.0 out of 5 stars I wish I could rate this movie 10 stars! January 8, 2004
By JunQue
Format:VHS Tape
Naughty Marietta, winning the Oscar for Best Sound Recording in 1935, is the crown jewel of the Eddy/MacDonald films, holding a special place in anyone's heart that has ever had the pleasure of seeing it. It is esteemed as one of the best-loved operettas of all time, and that's saying a lot about this film.
Made in 1935, and starring Hollywood's `Singing Sweethearts', Nelson Eddy and Jeanette MacDonald put on a grand performance, rapt with romance, drama, and comical antics. No two persons could have played the part better, and with such chemistry.
Jeanette MacDonald shines in her role as the French Princess Marie who runs away incognito as her servant Marietta, to escape her arranged marriage to a Spanish duke. Passing herself off as a casquet girl, she shows herself a kind-hearted woman to the girls around her, who are on a ship bound to New Orleans to become wives to the colonists. Almost at their destination, they run into pirates and all of them are abducted. Captain Warrington (Nelson Eddy) and his mercenary scouts just happen to be in the bayou neighborhood when Marietta calls for help, and he comes to the aid of the women. It is during this part that Eddy sings one of my favorite songs, `The Owl and the Bobcat' (I just love watching him sing!)
Of course, this being Nelson Eddy's movie-starrring debut, there are moments in the movie where he appears a bit stiff, but those moments are few and far between. The very handsome baritone pulled off his performance near to perfection. I just know the little quibbles because of some research I did. I'm now a die-hard fan of their films. It is now one of my favorite films of all time. I hope it becomes one of yours too.

5.0 out of 5 stars This, MacDonald/Eddy's first, was possibly their best. January 21, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Naughty Marietta is my favorite Jeanette MacDonald/Nelson Eddy movie. My grandmother used to hum the tunes from this movie to me when I was little, and she encouraged me to watch for all their movies on the re-runs. But they never came. So I went out and bought all of the movies they appeared in together, once they were available on video.
This one if fabulous. Although there are one or two of their movies I have only watched a couple of times because they were not stellar in my opinion, I have viewed this one more than 20 times. I just cannot get enough of the great voices these two have, plus the excellent songs themselves, and the fire that sparks between the two actors during the scenes.
It is my understanding that the opening song in this movie brought the house down with cheers and standing ovations from audiences across the nation. When's the last time you were in a theatre and saw THAT happen?
And could the puppy (actually it took several puppies to film the scene, but the script calls for one) be any cuter, climbing the stairs to try and catch up with Jeanette?
Want more comedy? Focus on actor Frank Morgan (the wizard in "The Wizard of Oz"). His co-stars have a hard time not laughing out loud while watching him. Watch the scene at the punch bowl, and keep an eye on him when he stares down the Princess' uncle (actor Douglas Dumbrille) during "Ah, Sweet Mystery of Life." He's priceless.
Could Nelson's voice be any more dynamic than in "'Neath the Southern Moon"? These two don't take off one stitch of clothing, but that is one hot tune ("'Neath the spreading shade of palms, you WILL surrender") for its time.

5.0 out of 5 stars "You don't cook a radish, you eat it alive!" February 27, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
How I love this movie! It's just great. The first in a long line of Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy collaberations, it's easily one of the best, and my personal fave. The music is beautiful, the sets and costumes are lush, and the plot is silly fun.
MacDonald is a runaway French princess who is traveling incognito with a shipload of brides bound for N'Orleans. Eddy is the Mercenary Captain who saves her from a band of cutthroat pirates. Songs include "Neath the Southern Moon", "I'm Falling in Love with Someone", "O Sweet Mystery of Life", and "Zing Zing Zing" among others.
There are several great scenes; Eddy marching though the bayous singing "Tramp Tramp Tramp", MacDonald passing off a random drunk as her "uncle" and of course a great sequence where Jeanette unveils her heretofore hidden talent for singing to Eddy.
The sweet, lightheatered spirit of this movie makes it a great introduction to the Eddy/MacDonald cannon for newcomers. If you like this film be sure to also check out "Rosemarie" (generally considered to be their best film) and "New Moon" (containing my favorite movie line of all time: "Do I LOOK like the kind of girl who would marry a moonstruck beachcomber under a coconut tree!?"). "Naughty Marietta" is a happy little movie that is essential for old-movie buffs or anyone who likes a good romance. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars SECOND ONLY TO "MAYTIME". January 28, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
In 18th century France, French Princess Marie de Namours de la Bonfain, an orphan who lives with her uncle, refuses to marry Spanish grandee Don Carlos de Braganza. Although the marriage has been sanctioned by King Louis XV, Marie doesn't care a whit. She wants a man who is "tall and strong in the wind"...The first and one of the most enjoyable of all 8 MacDonald-Nelson musicals, this was originally intended as a vehicle for Marion Davies. Considered one of the top ten pictures of 1935, this opulent M-G-M production was nominated an AA for Best Picture & it won Best Sound Recording AA (Douglas Shearer, brother of Norma). The cast is excellent and full of colourful character players: Elsa Lanchester, Frank Morgan & Marjorie Main among them. The exquisite score includes: ITALIAN STREET SONG, TRAMP, TRAMP, TRAMP, AH, SWEET MYSTERY OF LIFE (Victor Herbert, naturally). A beautiful MacDonald-Eddy film, this is real gem for their fans!
