Beautiful Photos of Jeanette MacDonald From the Film ‘Naughty Marietta’ (1935)

Naughty Marietta is a 1935 American musical romance film based on the 1910 operetta of the same name by Victor Herbert. Jeanette MacDonald stars as a princess who flees an arranged marriage. She sails for New Orleans and is rescued from pirates by Captain Richard Warrington (Nelson Eddy).

Five of Herbert’s most famous songs come from the score of Naughty Marietta, with words by lyricist Rida Johnson Young: “Ah! Sweet Mystery of Life”, “Italian Street Song”, “Neath the Southern Moon”, “I’m Falling in Love with Someone” and “Tramp! Tramp! Tramp! (Along the Highway)”. Additional lyrics for several of Herbert’s songs were penned for the film by Gus Kahn. The film was written by Frances Goodrich, Albert Hackett, John Lee Mahin and Rida Johnson Young.

It was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture. Douglas Shearer won the Academy Award for Best Sound Recording for his work on the picture. In 2003, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”
