Jeanette MacDonald

Why isn't she more beloved by DL?

She always seemed old fashioned

I never will forget



To think of her

It gives my heart a pang

I never will forget

How that brave Jeanette

Just stood there

In the ruins

And sang...

It keeps me up at night, just pondering this question over and over.

Her style of musical theater was dead before WWII. That's a long time ago.

I'm more perplexed by her enormous popularity in the 1930s, especially during the rigors of The Depression. I can't imagine what the common man (and woman) saw in her.

Yet, I guess I am somewhat of a fan and have enjoyed watching her in some of her classic films.

She wasn't sexy. In her early films she seemed virginal, in her later films she seemed downright priggish.

You'd think the sex-negative old bitches here would consider her their idol.

When silent films moved into talkies, she couldn't make the transition because her pussy stank.

JM is a classic actress. A rare talent, unseen in anybody on stage or film today.
