JEANETTE MacDONALD and GENE RAYMOND

JEANETTE MacDONALD and GENE RAYMOND. Vintage 10×8 matte finish silver tone publicity portrait of the doting couple, boldly signed and inscribed in blue fountain pen, “For/[indecipherable]/Sincerely/Jeanette MacDonald, “ and additionally signed by Gene Raymond. Pristine condition. Fans were absolutely livid in 1937 when MacDonald married Raymond instead of onscreen romantic partner Nelson Eddy, but the real-life sweethearts remained one of Hollywood’s most devoted couples right up until MacDonald’s death in 1965, appearing together in a single film, Smilin’ Through in 1941. Jointly signed photographs are rather uncommon.
