Sweetheart Fan Club: Let this be our motto for our Fan Club]

Hi, Sweetheart Fan Club Members:

I believe this message so best describes so many feelings and experiences and shows us the way in how to avoid them in the future. 

 

This is what Jeanette always wanted, LOYAL FAN'S SUPPORT and this is a good motto for us to use. 

Ah, Sweet Mystery of Life .... yes, she found it, and now let us show her how much we love and adore her.

Luck in your dreams....Gia & Gio

 

 

 

 The Golden Diva's Centennial Year, like a perfect Diamond which has a 100 facets to it, our precious gem, Jeanette will be celebrating her 100th Birthday, June 18, 2003.  In her great wisdom, she gave all of her Loyal Fans a real treat, she celebrated her birthday as of June 18, 1907 -- which means -- unlike other stars in the sky who just have one year to celebrate their centennial year,  we have four wonderful years to party with the Golden Comet, the rarest of all Gems.

Over the coming years this Tribute Website, with the spirit and resolve of both old and new fans, can be become a great Fan Site.  And, yes, with True Loyal Fans of the Jeanette Caliber who have the love and fortitude can build this shining beacon of light.  With never a spoken unkind word, we pay honor to our great Star -- respect to a woman who showed the whole world what it was like to be a true Queen who always walked with great dignity.

A hundred toasts to

 Phila.'s Queen of the Silver Screen

Inquirer Movie Critic
 

You can read the whole article at this link: http://www.philly.com/mld/philly/entertainment/6089176.htm

Contact movie critic Carrie Rickey at 215-854-5402

or

 crickey@phillynews.com.

 and let her know how wonderful her article is.

 

In a city that has spawned its share of movie stars, the typical multiplex rat might be excused for not knowing the name of Philadelphia's longest-reigning export to Tinseltown.

 

It isn't W.C. Fields or Grace Kelly or even Will Smith. The Fresh Prince has to be a top draw for 12 more years to equal this Hollywood queen's 20-year box-office dominion. And you have to wonder whether his official admiration society, like hers, will be going strong 66 years after its founding - and almost 40 years after its namesake's death.

 

But Philadelphians, don't reveal your ignorance to the 1,800 adoring members of the Jeanette MacDonald International Fan Club, who on Wednesday will hoist a few sherries to mark the 100th anniversary of the West Philly thrush's birth.

 

Other Wednesday festivities in honor of the Hollywood legend - who died of heart failure in 1965 at age 61, 16 years after her last movie - include a free 6 p.m. screening of The Merry Widow at the Prince Music Theater. And Cable's Turner Classic Movies will show six of MacDonald's movies.

 

MacDonald continues to excite such passion for two reasons. Because she brought high art and her high C to a mass art form. And because singers stir hearts in ways that straight actors cannot.

 

"I hear the trained soprano," wrote Walt Whitman. "[She] convulses me like the climax of my love grip."

 

Lloyd Nolan, costar of MacDonald's final film, The Sun Comes Up, put it even more pungently in MacDonald's eulogy: "When Jeanette sang, she sang to you."

Jeanette Mac Donald badly shaken up when another car plowed into the back of hers when she stopped for a signal. Force of the collision knocked the star's hat and glasses off.

Wonderful surprise for Jeanette MacDonald! She looked up on The Birds and the Bees set and there was Gene Raymond, who got to fly out after all for the holidays. It will be the first Christmas the two have spent together since the war.
