Rise Stevens

  1. Kathryn Grayson, Rio Rita, 1941.       What started life as just another Nelson Eddy-Jeannette MacDonald musical suddenly churned into the first of MGM’s three Abbott & Costello farces. Opera singers Stevens and Marta Eggerth were – momentarily – in the frame as leading lady. Stevens had co-starred with Eddy in The Chocolate Soldier, 1940.
