With their splendid voices, matinee-idol looks, vivacity (she) and stoutheartedness (he), Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy were America's Singing Sweethearts, "a true team, mixing the chemistry that permits one to accept disguised princesses, dream melodies and beautiful doom" (Ethan Mordden, The Hollywood Musical). Naughty Marietta is their first film together, a blithe tale of a French princess who arrives incognito in colonial New Orleans and falls into the manly arms of a captain with one terrific baritone. The soaring Victor Herbert melodies - including Ah Sweet Mystery of Life and Tramp, Tramp, Tramp - became forever identified with the stars. This 1935 Best Picture Academy Award nominee and Oscar winner for Best Sound Recording remains a Hollywood milestone...and a total delight.

...and the movie was great. The Eddy/McDonald team was a favorite of my 95+ year old mother-in-law, and I was as enthralled as she was in this great movie. Their singing voices were really incredible, too. I’m now looking forward to seeing the other movies they did together.
But you know in many ways I enjoyed the supporting cast more than the stars. Elsa Lancaster is an absolute hoot who steals every scene she's in, and she's well matched with Frank Morgan playing her poor bumbling hen-pecked husband. "Yes, I can't wait to see this horse that you must apologize to." Great fun all around.

A charming love story, fine acting, and powerful voices deliver Rida Johnson Young's librettos and Victor Herbert's music direct to the heart.
They don't make them like this any more - how could they? This kind of talent no longer exists.
Charming storey about a princess who is ordered to marry an horrid old man to whom she hates. She then hides as a maid and sets of to america to escape only to fall in love with a soldier. Not going to spoil it hope you enjoy the film.
I LOVED THE FIRST 45 MINS OF IT. THEN IT. WOULD NOT PLAY. SO I HAVE. NOT SEEN IT. ALL. LINDA MARSHALL
