Rose-Marie (1936) - Romeo And Juliet Opening in a fancy Montreal theater, Jeanette MacDonald as the star Marie de Flor, performing in the French opera Romeo et Juliette by Charles Gounod, Jules Barbier and Marcel Carre, big troubles coming in her personal life, in Rose-Marie, 1936 also starring Nelson Eddy.
Eskimo (1933) - A Strange Primeval Creed Opening from MGM and W.S. Van Dyke, a prologue playing on the director’s success with earlier exotic features (White Shadows In The South Seas, 1928, and Trader Horn, 1931), including an untrue claim about casting, but a graceful enough introduction of his leads, Ray Wise (here known as Ray “Mala,” his character’s name) and Lulu Wong Wing his wife, in Eskimo, 1933.
Eskimo (1933) - Walrus Hunt Little adherence to the story, plus cruel slaughter, but some of the best, legitimate Northern Alaska on-location shooting, directed by W.S. Van Dyke and photographed by Clyde De Vinna, George Gordon Nogle, Leonard Smith and Josiah Roberts for MGM, plus some odd process shots, in the first picture ever to win a Best Film Editing Academy Award, Eskimo, 1933.
Eskimo (1933) - One Has Been Wifeless Long? Probably horrible but a significant plot point, Alaskan-born Ray Wise, who became known as Ray “Mala,” the name of his character in this picture, meets a fellow hunter who’s lost his wife, and graciously offers his own (Lulu Wong Wing as Aba), everyone en route to meet the white-man’s ship, W.S. Van Dyke directing on location in Northern Alaska, in Eskimo, 1933.
Thin Man, The (1934) - No Dogs Allowed! First appearance in the first feature for both Myrna Loy as Nora Charles and Asta the Wire Fox Terrier (real name “Skippy”), joining just-introduced William Powell as Nick Charles, with friend Dorothy (Maureen O’Sullivan) at a New York hotel bar, in the MGM hit from the Dashiel Hammet novel, W.S. Van Dyke directing, in The Thin Man, 1934.
Great Ziegfeld, The (1936) - Split The Children At the 1893 Chicago World's Fair, Flo (William Powell) with strong-man Sandow (Nat Pendleton) gets a derisive message from rival promoter Billings (Frank Morgan), who arrives with belly dancer "Little Egypt" (Suzanne Kaaren), early in The Great Ziegfeld, 1936.
Night Must Fall (1937) -- You Agree With Me Danny (Robert Montgomery) is ingratiating himself with Mrs. Bramson (Dame May Whitty) while her niece Olivia (Rosalind Russell) reconsiders his charms, only to grow suspicious about the tune he whistles, in Night Must Fall, 1937.
Night Must Fall (1937) -- I Am Not A Snob Danny (Robert Montgomery) has just been introduced to the household where his girlfriend Dora (Merle Tottenham) is the maid and Olivia (Rosalind Russell) works for her aunt Mrs. Bramson (Dame May Whitty) in Night Must Fall, 1937.
Laughing Boy (1934) - It Is White Man's Way Family-oriented young Navajo (Ramon Novarro, title character) is more virtuous than his new fianceè “Slim Girl” (Lupe Velez), whom he’s bringing home to meet his folks after meeting her at a cosmopolitan tribal gathering in the southern part of the reservation, in MGM’s Laughing Boy, 1934.
Sweethearts (1938) - Wooden Shoes After supporting players are introduced in elaborate exposition of the sixth anniversary performance of their Broadway performance, Ray Bolger dances and Jeanette MacDonald sings, Nelson Eddy coming in the next number, in MGM’s Technicolor Sweethearts, 1938, lyrics by Bob Wright and Chet Forrest to the original Victor Herbert tune.
Sweethearts (1938) - Every Lover Must Meet His Fate The second number which introduces Nelson Eddy as Broadway star Ernest Lane, joining Jeanette MacDonald as his wife Gwen Marlowe, in the anniversary performance of their long-running musical hit, new lyrics by Bob Wright and Chet Forrest, to the tune from the Victor Herbert operetta, in Sweethearts, 1938.
Sweethearts (1938) - Pretty As A Picture Frank Morgan is the Broadway producer for musical stars, Ernest Lane and Gwen Marlowe (Nelson Eddy and Jeanette MacDonald), now doing a radio show celebrating six years in their hit show, in MGM’s first three-strip Technicolor feature, Sweethearts, 1938.
