Summary
"For more than thirty years, The Voice of Firestone brought the world's greatest artists into the homes of music lovers, first through radio broadcasts, and later through their innovative telecasts. Now, through a special arrangement with the New England Conservatory in Boston, Kultur Video is proud to make these rare telecasts available to today's audience on DVD. Actress and soprano Jeanette MacDonald captivated worldwide audiences and won millions of loyal devotees through her appearances on stage, screen, opera, concert, radio, recordings, and television. Among her many record-breaking films are such American classics as The Merry Widow and Love Me Tonight (with Maurice Chevalier); Naughty Marietta, Rose Marie, Maytime, Sweethearts, The Girl of the Golden West (all with Nelson Eddy); San Franciso (with Clark Gable); Smilin' Through (with Gene Raymond); and many, many more. Though primarily remembered for her unequealled [sic] interpretations of the masterpieces of operetta, she also sang Grand Opera, prompting Chicago's noted music critic, Claudia Cassidy, to dub her the "Princess of Opera." The Voice of Firestone telecast of November 13, 1950 marked the occasion of Miss MacDonald's television debut, and her only appearance on the Firestone series. Telecast "live"; the program contains all the excitement and immediacy of a live performance, adding a new dimension to our appreciation of the artistry of Jeanette MacDonald." - container
