Wanted: anyone in Pittsburgh area who knew/met Nelson Eddy or Jeanette MacDonald
For a documentary film about the lives of 1930s movie stars/singers Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy, I’d like to hear from anyone, particularly in the Pittsburgh area, who might have known or seen Nelson and Jeanette. This would include hearing them in local concerts, opera or nightclubs, anyone knowing them personally (especially since Jeanette was a Philly native and Nelson spent his teenage and early adults years in Philly and singing around Pennsylvania). I’m looking for friends, fans, co-workers, family and/or lovers…and annonymity is assured, if you prefer. Anyone whose parents or grandparents might have had a connection, particularly in Pittsburgh, should also contact me. Any help or leads will be appreciated, you can email me at email@example.com. I was a good friend of Jeanette’s older sister Blossom (the 3rd MacDonald sister Elsie had a dance school in Upper Darby) and am the author of a duo-biography of the team, “Sweethearts,” in which I candidly discuss their off-screen romance. My website is: www.maceddy.com and you can also read the first chapter of Ã¢â‚¬Å“SweetheartsÃ¢â‚¬Â? at this link. Thanks for any help you can provide!
