Trivia

According to Louis B. Mayer biographer Charles Higham, Nelson Eddy was reportedly so jealous and insecure about potential competition from tenor Allan Jones that he asked that Jones' footage in the film be reduced; the studio agreed and cut what would have been Jones' only solo number in the film, the famous aria "E lucevan le stelle" from Giacomo Puccini's "Tosca".

Goofs

When Sgt. Bruce is taking Marie de Flor across the lake in a rowboat, he paddles only on the right side. The couple are in a canoe. It is common in canoeing to paddle on one side employing a J-stroke--adding a lateral slip to counteract yaw. See more »

Marie de Flor: That's the worst orchestra and the worst conductor I've ever sung with!

High Camp That We Love
18 June 2002 | by Bucs1960See all my reviews

When you see this film, you must remember that these were America's Singing Sweethearts and movies were very different than they are today. We were just coming off of the Great Depression and moviegoers needed something frothy and light to forget their troubles. Nelson Eddy and Jeanette McDonald were just the ticket. Although they may not have been the greatest actors in film (especially Eddy), they were beautiful to look at and when they began to sing, you were swept away. The story line was never very important.....it was just a framing device until the next song. That's what people came to see and hear...it was all so romantic. So, put aside any thought of Academy Award acting and if it's a little bit corny, just ignore it.....instead get caught up in the sound of two of the most glorious voices in screen history.....together they epitomized the romantic ideal. After almost 70 years, it's still wonderful!!!
