Rose-Marie  [DVD]Jeanette MacDonald (actor)
Format: all-region dvd (worldwide)
Runtime: 111 min
Admittedly, the phenomenally successful 1930s musicals of America's Sweethearts, Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy, creak mightily now, but there is still abundant
fun in this loose adaptation of the Otto Harback-Oscar Hammerstein II-Rudolf Friml-Herbert Stothart operetta combined here with a manhunt melodrama.
Opera singer MacDonald falls in love with
Canadian Mountie Nelson while trying to shield her ne'er-do-well fugitive kid brother Jimmy Stewart from the lawman's dogged pursuit. A highlight is the fabled twosome's duet of Indian Love
Watch, too, for a brief appearance by eager-to-please newcomer David Niven as Rose Marie's would-be suitor.
