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
