REMEMBERING NELSON EDDY

Remembering Nelson (Ackerman) Eddy who died this date in 1967...

An American singer and actor who appeared in 19 musical films during the 1930s and 1940s, as well as in opera and on the concert stage, radio, television, and in nightclubs. 

A classically trained baritone, he is best remembered for the eight films in which he costarred with soprano Jeanette MacDonald. He was one of the first "crossover" stars, a superstar appealing both to shrieking bobby soxers and opera purists, and in his heyday, he was the highest paid singer in the world.  READ MORE HERE http://bit.ly/2n58iXs
