Movie Reviews

The Lottery Bride
Joann Porter Toll | XCalifornia | 11/02/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Jeanette looks smashing in beautiful fur parkas when she heads north of the Arctic Circle in this 1930 musical/action/romance. Rudolf Friml is credited with the music and after loving "The Firefly", I looked forward to this musical set in Norway. However, the music lacks the Spanish flavor of "The Firefly". But we are treated to special effects when a large dirigible (think Hindenberg) crashes in the ice and the hero is on board. Both Jeanette in an ice breaker and the hero's brother with a dog team head out to rescue him, both simultaneously arrive just in time and we see Jeanette and her one and only embrace with a backdrop of Northern Lights in black & white. Well, it's different. And for fans of Jeanette, it's an early example of the sort of charm that kept her in the forefront of film musicals for many years to come. Collectors and fans of Jeanette will love it. It will seem dated to newcomers to her style of romantic musical film."
Once a Jeanette fan...always a fan

"Being introduced to the lovely voice of Jeannette Macdonald in her many movies with
Nelson Eddy during the 60 and 70's as her movies were continuously on television, and when they were, my mother had them on. So as a child i heard a angel sing, and
that angel once i grew up i found out it was Jeanette Mcdonald.
When i saw this movie, i was amazed, this is the movie i always wanted to see again,
and voila here it is. Take this movie with a grain of salt and you should enjoy it.
I found it great, except for the jealous lover....overdone or what...and thats what
i said to myself as a kid 40 years ago.
Anyway, glad they still have a print going around, and even if its not a gem, its
a very likable movie.
A Keeper."

Early days with THE Perfect Ingenue

"This is one of Jeanette MacDonald's first films. It was produced in the very late 1920s, so it cannot compare to the technical perfection of today (when kids can operate two Blackberries at the same time!) But given that, it is always interesting to see how folks back then viewed our world. Miss MacDonald was fresh, budding, and though the plot was -- in reflection today -- a smidgeon corny, so was life then, and you can view this about-to-become film Princess as she dawned on Hollywood. It is very interesting to her aficionados."
