Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween from the Jeanette MacDonald Blog!
I KNOW I've seen a photo somewhere of Jeanette and Gene in costume for a party of some sort, and I would gladly post if only I could find it... and of course, I can't. But I know it exists. I'm also pretty sure Kayla once told me that Jeanette used one of Norma Shearer's costumes from Marie Antoinette for Halloween once. That trumps basically any costume I could ever come up with.
Have a safe and happy Halloween!

Yeah, that would be Jeanette & Gene & Judy. WHOA WHOA WHOA.
This photo was made known to us at the same time as the photo Kayla posted a few days ago of Jeanette & Judy & Kathryn Grayson & person we have now identified as Susannah Foster, which is also incredible. I really freaked out (in a good way) when I first saw these pictures and it got me thinking about why it is we get so excited when we find photos of our favorite people all hanging out together. Obviously, duh, because we're fangirls (and boys). But it's... it's kind of more than that. At least for me, it repeatedly blows my mind when I think about all these supremely talented people existing together. What did those conversations consist of? Like, what are Jeanette and Judy laughing about? (Probably something truly hilarious, since they were both very funny.) I guess we'll never know, but I sure am glad these pictures exist.
That's my food for thought for the day.

More random stuff from my old hard drive.

So this exists:

Notice how Howard is a.) sitting at her feet and b.) apparently fascinated by her every word.
The End. :)


I can't quite describe the noise I made at this picture. I's probably a squeal the likes of something only dogs can hear.
To hell with you, layout! To hell, I say!

I'm loving that Jeanette's smile is all perfect and naturally fancy, while Kathryn and Judy are all out without their MGM teeth. And really, it looks like Jeanette is the DD for some wicked mad amazingly talented party. I'm sure Awkwardine is pointing at Judy because it was all her idea slash she called them all at 2AM to come party with her.

Jeanette MacDonald: Cowgirl.

Sometimes I'm driving home from a long stupid day at work and I think, "LOL, wouldn't it be funny if Jeanette was a country singer?"
Then I remembered this picture, which qualifies as:
a) a silly hat
b) possibly what Jeanette as a country singer would look like

I like to imagine it's a pink cowboy hat. Pink was homegirl's favorite color, so it would meet her approval.
Photo is thanks to Di.

Stop Judging Meeee!

So... I made this video a long time ago. I was very young. It was Paris, in... you get it.
I just found it on my old hard drive, and since I'm a masochist, I've decided to share it. Since blogger is a meanie, I can't embed the video, so this is a link, that should promt you to open it in windows media player. Let the judgment cease now (especially from those of you who may recognize the music, hahaha)
Maytime FanVid

Oh Lord, I'm even judging myself.

I was away from the internet yesterday/last night when this was being discovered, but a few of Jeanette's costumes were auctioned on yesterday. Except... only one of them sold? The auctions are closed now, so Brigitta's omg!bad girl! dress still has no home. It could live in my home, but I doubt the seller accepts payment in Wizard of Oz Monopoly money, which is about all I have to offer. This lovely blue sequined dress from Sweethearts didn't sell either. Buuuut this pink San Francisco gown by Adrian went for $12,000 (NOT in Wizard of Oz Monopoly money).
After the jump is a video of ye olde San Francisco dress in action.

It's been a while. We're busy girls, and sometimes blogging is hard.

Di recently sent us some fun photos, and I will post one now, because it's really cute (I use that word to describe Jeanette all the time. I need a new adjective!), and because my brain is so fried from work this week that translating thoughts into type is mighty difficult.
HOPEFULLY Blogger will let me upload an image today.

Why yes, yes, that is Jeanette wearing a tutu and sticking her little behind in the air. AND making a kissy face. (You can click to enlarge, if you so desire.)
Your day has just been made.
You're welcome.

Pretty Pretty Princess!

I was wanting to start a new feature focusing on Jeanette's many fun fashions, but then I realized that might be pointless since I comment on what she's wearing in just about everything we post here, anyway.
I found this picture on Corbis, and again, I don't know where or what it's from. All I know is Gene is wearing a top hat and Jeanette is wearing a Pretty Pretty Princess dress and jewelry, and that is good enough for me. I like to pretend they're going to the circus. I don't know why. There's another picture from this same evening where they're posing with Emmett Kelly the clown, but since I'm deathly afraid of clowns, I really don't like that picture and will not be posting it. But it exists.
...For some reason, Blogger doesn't want to let me add an image today. Thanks, Blogger. Much appreciated.
You can see the picture by clicking here. Take THAT, Blogger! Just try and ruin my post!

This is a Post.

Rose Marie was on TCM this afternoon! I was not aware of this fact until this morning while already at work, and thus, I ran home on my lunch break to set my DVR.
I'm sure that is extremely interesting to... everyone. Yes. Moving along.

My offering this evening is merely a photo. I know not where it comes from, as in, I know no details of it as I found it in this great amalgam of tubes we call The Internets. In keeping with what seems to be the theme of photos I post here, it's cute. With a capital Q. (I don't know what that meant, either. It just rolled off my tongue... er, fingers. It's been a long day. I think my job makes me a zombie.)
Cute-With-a-Capital-Q Photo is after the jump, because it's tall. Sooo click it!
