Rose-Marie Details


This first version of the Rudolf Friml operetta Rose-Marie had no music, but it did have Joan Crawford in the title role. More faithful to its source than the 1936 Nelson Eddy-Jeanette McDonald remake, the 1928 film finds the heroine torn between her love for Mountie House Peters and her loyalty to her outlaw brother James Murray. When Peters is forced to shoot and kill Murray, it looks like curtains for his romance with the heroine. But after a reel or so of histrionics, the girl forgives Peters for doing his duty. The final version of Murray (at least to date) was lensed in 1954, with Ann Blyth and Howard Keel. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
