  • Eyewitness Accounts – Jeanette MacDonald & Nelson Eddy Home Page
    when Jeanette married Gene Raymond Jean Johnson Issue 11 My twin sister and I started as dancers in 1935 I appeared in about 75 movies at different studios I worked with a lot of them Deanna Durbin Jeanette MacDonald others Jeanette was a kind person sweet it showed on her face She was a lovely lady She and Nelson Eddy were sweethearts and he got her pregnant during Rose Marie in which June Thompson was a dancer It so happened that they hushed this thing up and the studio had her marry Gene Raymond who was a homosexual Her affair with Nelson Eddy had to be broken up She was told she had to have an abortion Because the studio wouldn t hear of her having a baby June Thompson Swift Issue 38 I grew up around MGM My father was a studio electrician from 1932 1940 and I remember Nelson Eddy and Jeanette Jean Harlow and Clark Gable These are my four favorite people and I enjoyed knowing each one In 1940 my father got a job in the East which brought us to New York I remember talking with Harlow and Gable when they were making China Seas in 1935 I was seven at the time and Harlow brought me an ice cream cone and I sat on her knee She was a wonderful girl The first time I met Jeanette and Nelson was when they were making Rose Marie which started late in 1935 They were two of the most wonderful people I ever met PS My father never liked Gene Raymond he used to come on the set and always started something to embarrass Nelson Bill Sutherland Issue 11 I was too young when their pictures first came out but my mother took me to see Nelson s concert This was in Seattle Jeanette made an unexpected appearance and Nelson warmly introduced her They ended up singing a concert together and it was so incredible that I instantly picked up Mac Eddy fever I saw a few of their concerts in later years but the biggest thrill was to catch them riding one day in Central Park I recognized Jeanette s hair right away and then Nelson whose hair was white They really didn t look that much older and they did look happy Oh if only I d had the nerve to say hello to tell them how much I d enjoyed them and their music Rita Morrow Issue 15 I don t understand how anyone would say Nelson Eddy was unfriendly because at one concert I saw him at he signed autographs for almost everyone who attended and when asked how he could do it he replied They call me Iron hand Nelson I stood at the end of the table thrilled and speechless and wish now I had thanked him for so many wonderful hours in my life When he was through he jumped over the table and waved to everyone Mildred May Issue 10 In the early 1950s when I was just starting out in show business I was very close to a man who represented many celebrities He knew Nelson very well they met during the war and traveled together overseas When he found out how much I loved Nelson he delighted me with stories about him and about other celebrities I soon learned he was well aware of what he called the affair between Nelson and Jeanette as well as were many other people some who were their friends and some who were not He said he met them here a few times and in California and it was my impression he only knew Jeanette through Nelson There was one time I recall he said he saw them at a restaurant next to the hotel they stayed at He stopped at the table but did not stay because they seemed to be really upset about something Some nights later he met Nelson at a bar and over a few drinks Nelson confided his unhappiness He said he was thinking of moving to New York and trying television Eventually that is what he did My friend worked with him on The Desert Song Carolyn Power Issue 38 I always felt they cared for each other and I was convinced of it after seeing one of Nelson s free concerts in Philadelphia He used to do this every year People were seated on a first come first serve basis but there were always hundreds who didn t get in so they had loudspeakers outside the building One of the last years he did this I was lucky enough to get a seat near the front As was his custom he sang requests from his films Finally somebody yelled for Wanting You He called back I can t sing that without Miss MacDonald Ask me something else Just then Jeanette stood up in the audience At first I thought it was prearranged but Nelson looked as surprised to see her as the audience She nodded to the accompanist who began playing Wanting You and she sang it as she walked up onto the stage beside him Nelson seemed quite overcome When she finished he hugged her and kissed her hand Then he turned to the audience and asked if they wanted some duets You can imagine the response to that suggestion They sang several of their best songs and Nelson never let go of her hand all the time they were singing They looked so beautiful so childlike and happy together It was amazing to watch them and I ll never forget it Ethel Wilson Issue 4 I was in complete charge of the scripts on Nelson s radio show The Electric Hour I typed them ran them off on mimeo and checked them for errors Then I hand delivered each one personally to Nelson Sometimes Nelson made changes in the script he was very good at writing comedy and could rewrite the
