When Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy go into their special numbers you are able to sit back and enjoy your money's worth up to, and even considerably beyond, its limit.

A much underrated if not great film, Naughty Marietta features some particulary amusing supporting work by Harold Huber and Edward Brophy.

Nominated for the Best Picture Oscar, this is the first of eight but not the best teaming of Eddie Nelson and Jeannette MacDonald.

The score includes the parodist's favorite, "Ah, Sweet Mystery of Life," and other numbers too annoying to mention.
