    Comments about Sweethearts:

    A delightful show biz spoof - bigger than life Broadway characters - a husband and wife singing team (did this influence KISS ME KATE?). Funny, entertaining, joyful. Splendid dvd transfer - bright, sharp, saturated color. Victor Herbert's original operetta is incorporated as the show being performed. Oscar nominated for Musical Scoring and Sound and winner of a special Oscar for Color Cinematography. Highly recommended! A gem!

          Comments about Sweethearts:

          Let's face it, almost all of the Nelson Eddy - Jeanette MacDonald films are hardly Shakespeare and no one would call the stories or acting great. What makes them worth owning are the voices. Too bad they didn't get to do more opera in these films.

              This is one of my favorite musicals! Seeing Jeanette & Nelson in color in a 'contemporary' picture is a real treat! Their love for each other was clearly obvious (Jeanette was pregnant).

                Comments about Sweethearts:

                This is not the same story as in the Broadway musical, but a story about the artists putting on "Sweethearts." Nonetheless, the singing and rapport between Eddy and MacDonald are great. I just wish I could have seen more of Ray Bolger!
