JEANETTE MacDONALD and GENE RAYMOND
Jeanette MacDonald and Gene Raymond sign a black and white publicity photograph of themselves.
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Mrs. Kirk/Sincerely/Jeanette MacDonald" and "and/Gene Raymond". Sepia, 8x10. 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. 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. Some of GENE RAYMOND's (1908-1998) best screen assignments include the anguished death row inmate in If I Had a Million (1932), the renegade groundskeeper in Zoo in Budapest (1933), the guy who won Dolores Del Rio in Flying Down to Rio (1933), the stuffy "other man" in Hitchcock's Mr. and Mrs. Smith (1941) and a glad-handing politico in The Best Man (1964). In 1948, Raymond produced, directed, co-wrote and starred in Million Dollar Weekend. Gene Raymond and Jeannette MacDonald were married from 1937 until her death in 1965; curiously, they acted together only once, in 1941's Smilin' Through. Slightly creased corners. Fine condition.
