One of the top-grossing films of 1937, Maytime is the poignant, glorious musical that has long been acknowledged as a supreme masterpiece of its genre. See and hear Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy at the height of their vocal powers and popularity. John Barrymore gives a thunderous portrayal as Nicolai Nazaroff, the egocentric voice teacher whose jealousy proves to be fatal. Marcia (MacDonald), young and beautiful, is an opera singer, the toast of Napoleon III's Paris. Paul (Eddy) is an American voice student, homesick and penniless. They meet and fall in love. Unfortunately, she has just accepted Nazaroff's proposal of marriage. Maytime's many highlights include Sigmund Romberg's lovely theme song, "Will You Remember?
