  • NAUGHTY MARIETTA was the first of nine films to pair Jeanette MacDonald with then unknown baritone Nelson Eddy, and the result was nothing less than magnificent, with the scenes in which they woo each other in song rivaling those of any musical love story from the 1930s. Their fine voices, combined with the plush sets of this opulent studio period piece, turn Victor Herbert's soulful operetta into a fine film. MacDonald plays a French princess who has been promised to an elderly nobleman. Determined to escape her horrid fate, MacDonald trades places with her maid and scurries off on a boat headed for the new world. En route to Louisiana, the boat is taken by pirates, then rescued by Captain Richard Warrington (Nelson Eddy). From here on out, the captain and the princess must escape the scourings of the French king, who yearns to drag MacDonald back to her doddering fianc. The film won the Oscar for best sound recording, and the soundtrack includes the popular tune "Ah! Sweet Mystery of Life," among numerous other songs.
