      Maytime presents Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy at the height of their powers. Acting and singing are of the highest level. The participation of the great John Barrymore is a plus.

          Comments about Maytime:

          For a supposedly remastered film, it is unacceptably grainy. From Leo's roar on, excessive grain is apparent. This is not a "B" or low-budget film, it is a classic and deserves better treatment. Many films from earlier in the decade (San Francisco, King Kong and Mutiny on the Bounty)look better than this. Granted, this is not a blu-ray but the transfer could be so much better. I think it was on the old laserdisc.

            As a true fan of this team I would not be giving this movies justice if I did not say this movie competes with my love for the movie Rose Marie of all the movies this team made, these are the two movies I watch the most and consider them to be the best this team made a major complement considering most of the movies made by this couple did exceptionally well at the box office.

              I saw this in a theater that shows old movies. I bought it, because I liked it so much, and I love Jeanette Macdonald and Nelson Eddy.

              AT LAST - MAYTIME IS ON DVD

              By film collector

              Comments about Maytime:

              The singing duo's best film by far, finally makes it to dvd. This should have been released long ago as it is a special treat. The film was re-issued in cinemas during the 50's with great success in Australia. This quote sums up Maytime's appeal - "in recent revival showings the film never fails to cast its spell over an audience. ~ Hal Erickson".
