A vintage, magazine color version of this photo that is on the cover of Sharon Rich's 20th Anniversary edition of Sweethearts. Oh how happy they look here. Nelson said: “We were so young and bright in those early days. Everything was new, falling in love for really the first time in our lives.” - ESCANO COLLECTION
Original, vintage photo of Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy on the set of Rose Marie ( MGM 1936). This pose is slightly different than the one in Sharon's book. Here, Jeanette is looking directly at the camera and her right hand is holding the flowers.We can see that the overcoat she is wearing has the RCMP insignia. Nelson must have offered it to her to keep her warm as she was always cold. As in the other pose, Nelson is looking back at her adoringly - ESCANO COLLECTION
Nelson Eddy was an artist and sculptor and he actually painted the portrait of Jeanette MacDonald that was used in the movie "Sweethearts" But the fate of the that oil painting is unknown, as is the other known paintings he did of her over the years.
