    Classic Hollywood fan here...

    Favorite movie stars? Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy.

    Best 3 films?

    Naughty Marietta (1935)- second most popular film of the year next to Mutiny on the Bounty

    Rose Marie (1936)- the famous Mountie movie where they sing "Indian Love Call", their record of the song was one of the top-selling of that year - and is in the Grammy Hall of Fame.

    Maytime (1937) - the highest grossing movie worldwide of that year.

    If you don't know who they are, tivo some of their films on Turner Classic Movies in the next month or so. They are great classics!
