Always considered her older sister, Marie Blake, to be the more talented of the two, and was happy for her when she finally attained some measure of recognition, late in life, as Grandmama Addams (under her married name, Blossom Rock) on the popular The Addams Family (1964) TV show. According to biographer Sharon Rich, Ms. MacDonald never missed watching the show each week for that reason.


In May 1943 she made her Grand Opera Debut at His Majesty's Theater in Montreal, Canada singing the role of Juliet in "Romeo and Juliet.".

By the time she left M-G-M in the mid 1940s, MacDonald's box office clout had diminished considerably. She went from co-starring with such top flight studio players as Clark Gable and Spencer Tracy to sharing the screen in her final studio film with Lassie (and the canine actually got first billing).


1939: She was crowned Queen of the Movies by 22 million filmgoers in a New York Daily News survey.


1937: Screen Actors Guild awarded Jeanette the Best Performance Award, for Maytime (1937).

She got the lead in Thalberg's property The Merry Widow (1934), and her next MGM vehicle, Naughty Marietta (1935) brought her together with Nelson Eddy. For her next project she insisted Clark Gable should co-star. He at first refused - "I just sit there while she sings. None of that stuff for me.


Musicals went into decline and Paramount dropped her in 1931; her next pictures with Chevalier went nowhere. She went to Europe where she met Irving Thalberg and his wife Norma Shearer (whom she loaned both her hairdresser and chauffeur).


Was in four Oscar Best Picture nominees: The Love Parade (1929), One Hour with You (1932), Naughty Marietta (1935) and San Francisco (1936).


In 1928 Paramount tested and rejected her, but a year later Ernst Lubitsch saw her test and picked her to play opposite Maurice Chevalier in The Love Parade (1929).
