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.
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.

Special Tribute to Jeanette in her home city

hundred toasts to
Queen of the Silver Screen
Inquirer Movie Critic
You can read the whole article at this link:
movie critic Carrie Rickey at 215-854-5402
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
"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."
Hi, Sweetheart Fans!
Diane, just loved the sampling of press releases. You have been elected
official Hollywood Correspondent. We eagerly look forward to your next

Don't know whether they will be able to accept, but Jeanette
MacDonald and Nelson Eddy have been invited to open next session of Congress
by singing "The Star Spangled Banner."

Jeanette MacDonald's face was so red over an incident in Boston. Just as she
was telling an interviewer about he unimportance of clothes in her life,
porters came in wheeling 11 trunks and 7 pieces of hand luggage.

Jeanette MacDonald and Gene Raymond won't have any surprises for Christmas
on account of they've agreed that Jeanette will give Gene a swimming pool
and Gene is redecorating the playroom for her.
10/9/42 EHE Harrison Carroll
The Jeanette MacDonald concert tour netted the Army Emergency Relief Fund
$65,000 (the star's entire salary), plus $15,600 that Jeanette raised
through selling encores.
1/11/44 EHE Harrison Carroll
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.
12/10/46 EHE Harrison Carroll
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.
