Resounding with such songs as “Rose-Marie, I Love You,” “Song of the Mounties” and the beloved “Indian Love Call,” Rose-Marie immortalized Hollywood’s greatest singing team. This 1936 screen version of the Rudolf Friml-Herbert Stothart Broadway hit is set in the breathtaking wilderness of the Canadian Rockies.
Marie de Flor (MacDonald), a glamorous Canadian prima donna, is renowned for her beauty, exquisite voice and fierce temperament. When news arrives that her brother Jack (Jimmy Stewart in one of his earliest screen roles) has been wounded in a prison escape, Marie realizes she must go to him despite the danger. Lured into the wilderness, she encounters Sgt. Bruce (Eddy), who is hunting the fugitive. Sgt. Bruce is soon hot on Marie’s trail as well! The New York Times called Rose-Marie a “blithely melodious film rich in scenic beauty.” And after all these years, this rugged romance is as wonderful as ever.

adjustments; it is clean, clear, and even; naturally, it is mono.
IF anyone, like myself, who is a stickler for as near perfect DVD-R as possible "Rose Marie" does not disappoint. Well, maybe it does in the sense that there is no closed captioning for the hearing impaired or foreign speakers. The only extra is the trailer. Please be aware that this plays on "play only" DVD players and might not be suitable for certain computers yet it is a gem to own. Highly recommended.:-)
Total disappointment and totally unacceptable. Was a Christmas gift for my wife. Spending Christmas night emailing amazon customer service and alerting other consumers of unacceptably high defect rates. 1 out of 8 would have been frustrating.
5 out of 8 is obscene. I requested a replacement.
ORDER UPDATE: THANKS TO AMAZON'S GREAT SERVICE MY ORDER WAS IMMEDIATELY REPLACED AND THEY MADE SURE ALL MY DVD'S WORKED THE WAY THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO. THEIR COMMITMENT TO DOING THE RIGHT THING BY THE TRANSACTION HAS RENEWED MY SUPPORT FOR AMAZON.COM
THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL THE EXTRA EFFORT AND TROUBLE THE AMAZON TEAM WENT THROUGH TO MAKE IT RIGHT!
Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy were, therefore, a unique aberration in the history of cinema history, the only operatic partnership in Hollywood, ever. They were the operatic equivalent of Astaire and Rogers, and if their films never achieved the polish or brilliance of those two, they nonetheless managed to make some very fine films. ROSE MARIE is probably their most famous, and perhaps their finest.
The various renderings of "Indian Love Call" in the film are what the film is best known for, but upon reviewing the film last night with my daughter (who loved it, although she found many moments so embarrassing that she had to hide her head under a pillow, especially during the movie's closing moments), I was amazed at how enjoyable the movie is as a whole. The movie is delightful from beginning to end, gorgeous to look at (filmed, unfortunately, at Lake Tahoe, instead of the Canadian Rockies), and infinitely less dated than one might expect from an operatically driven 1936 comedy. The movie was also enhanced from a barrage of excellent supporting players. Reginald Owen, David Niven, Alan Mowbray, Una O'Connor, the aforementioned Allan Jones, and Jimmy Conlin (familiar to anyone who has seen many Preston Sturges comedies) provide a deep cast. Jimmy Stewart has a smallish role in the last film he made before becoming a lead actor.
One of the more intriguing segments was filmed at an actual Indian camp. Visually, it is a stunning sequence, but unfortunately MGM in the best Hollywood fashion marred the scene with added orchestral music and choreography. And no, this is not the film that breaks the mould by having an actual Native American play a Native American. George Regas, who made a career out of playing Indians, was actually born in Greece.
