Product Overview

An enchanted operetta set in the remote Norwegian Alps, The Lottery Bride evokes the storybook romances of Ernst Lubitsch and Rouben Mamoulian. It weaves the tale of a young tavern hostess (Jeanette MacDonald) who finds herself torn between a young student (John Garrick), a dashing Italian aviator (Joseph Macaulay) and a rugged miner (Robert Chisholm).

Through these complicated romantic maneuverings are woven a series of lively songs by Rudolf Friml and J. Kiern Brennan, including the rhapsodic "My Northern Lights." Spectacular visual effects devised by William Cameron Menzies (including a zeppelin crash in the arctic wasteland) and splashes of comedy by Joe E. Brown and Zasu Pitts help make The Lottery Bride a deliriously far-fetched melodrama that could only have emerged from the fearless early years of the Hollywood musical.

ReviewSource At-A-Glance Film Reviews
Review The Lottery Bride is an entertaining but indistinctive entry in the long line of frivolous musical comedies starring Jeanette MacDonald, one of the first superstars of movie musicals. The plot is a trifle -- her boyfriend catches her in an innocent but suspicious situation with another man and heads for a frigid mining camp to forget her. They meet again, but under tragically ironic circumstances. We know they'll sort through all the intervening co-stars and fall in love all over again, of course -- it's just a question of how, and by what heart pouring musical solos...I enjoyed The Lottery Bride, but mostly out of a sense of nostaglia for a bygone and dated era of filmmaking. It is doubtful many of today's audiences will be taken with it, and that's too bad. Fun movies -- even if they aren't great -- should have an audience.
