Inscribed Photograph signed: "To Saul/Sincerely/ Jeanette MacDonald", B/w 8x10. Ink note on verso dates signature: September 1934. One of actress/singer Jeannette MacDonald's (1903-1965) best early films was Monte Carlo (1930) as she sang "Beyond the Blue Horizon" from the observation car of a moving train. In 1935, MGM teamed MacDonald with baritone Nelson Eddy in Naughty Marietta, the first of eight highly popular MacDonald-Eddy film musicals. Though mercilessly lampooned by comedians, the pair's films were consummately produced and strove to entertain every member of the film audience, not merely opera lovers. After I Married an Angel (1942), the singing team split. MacDonald trained diligently to become a bona fide opera star, finally making her operatic debut in a 1943 Montreal production of Romeo and Juliet. Saul Goodman (1919-2003), a New York business man by day, pursued his love of film and theatre in the evening, making friends with many celebrities. While other autograph seekers offered album leaves, Goodman presented stars with snazzy photographs, a rarity then, to sign in fountain pen. Corners lightly worn. Edge lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
