Kilkee Civic Trust are delighted to welcome back Martin Bourke with The Jeanette MacDonald Profile. In the 1930’s and ‘40’s Jeanette MacDonald was a movie superstar recognised and acclaimed throughout the world. The release in Hollywood of a film featuring Jeanette MacDonald with one of her stable of leading actors such as Clarke Gable, Spencer Tracey, Tyrone Power, Ramon Novarro, Maurice Chevalier and of course Nelson Eddy, was a major event, which was frequently covered by global press agencies. In the first of two profiles this Summer, Martin Bourke will profile this remarkable woman followed on Friday, 10th August 2018 with a profile of Nelson Eddy, her film co-star and successful opera, concert and nightclub singer. These profiles in aid of the Kilkee Civic Trust are presented by Martin Bourke who has given us profiles on the composer Stephen Foster, singers Mario Lanza, John McCormack and Richard Tauber in the past. Presentation starts at 8pm.
