Nelson Eddy, the baritone, and a group of friends sat a private screening of his picture, “Naughty Marietta” in the Interstate screening room Monday night. During the scene in which he sings “I’m Falling in Love With Some One,” to Jeanette MacDonald, he signaled Buddy Holman, the projectionist, to turn off the sound and he supplied the music in person. Mr. Eddy sat on the extreme right of the front row. James Owen Cherry, Interstate city manager, sat third from the right on the front row. The rest of the audience was made up of guests of Mr. and Mrs. Eli Sanger, who shortly before entertained for Mr. Eddy with a reception at their home. “Naughty Marietta” will open Saturday at the Palace Theater here.
