Jeanette MacDonaldrn June 18, 1903 in Philadelphia, PA. Died on January 14, 1965, in Houston, TX.
She was known by the nickname "The Iron Butterfly" for her no-nonsense approach to filmmaking and contract negotiations with film companies.
MacDonald made four films with Maurice Chevalier, and three with Nelson Eddy, the latter team-ups probably her most famous film musicals.
She worked in film, toured as a singer, appeared in operas, and on radio and television. Her recording efforts yielded three gold records.
Her death in 1965 was exacerbated by heart trouble, abdominal adhesions and a brain tumor.
