Nelson Eddy

Highest Rated: 100% Maytime (1937)

Lowest Rated: 56% Naughty Marietta (1935)

Birthday: Jun 29, 1901

Birthplace: Providence, Rhode Island, USA

Promising opera baritone with a wholesome masculinity and a resounding voice who vaulted to stardom opposite Jeanette MacDonald in a series of enormously popular MGM operettas in the 1930s and early 40s. The duo starred in eight films together, though the first three, "Naughty Marietta" (1935), "Rose Marie" (1936) and "Maytime" (1937), were the team's best. Though his film career is largely linked with MacDonald's, Eddy did enjoy some success opposite Eleanor Powell in the lavish "Rosalie" (1938) and with Rise Stevens in the witty "The Chocolate Soldier" (1941). He also provided several voices for the disappointing, uneven Disney offering, "Make Mine Music" (1946), delightfully performing the title role of the segment, "The Whale Who Wanted to Sing at the Met." After his film career petered out in the late 40s, Eddy returned to occasional concert work and made nightclub appearances.
