One day to last the rest of their lives.Jeanette MacDonald, Nelson Eddy and John Barrymore star in a timeless, romantic tale of forbidden love and fatal consequences set to the heartbreaking music of Sigmund Romberg--Maytime.When a girl tells an old woman her dream to be an opera star, the woman weaves a tale of love and loss... Years before, Marcia Mornay (MacDonald) is the toast of Paris, a rising opera diva who has just accepted her mentor, Nazaroff's (Barrymore), marriage proposal. Although she meets and falls in love with a dashing young café singer, American Paul Allison (Eddy), Mornay chooses her career over love and marries Nazaroff. In New York seven years later, Mornay stars in an opera with Allison, and their love can no longer be denied. But Mornay's heart leads her to a place where--as in the operas she sings--only tragedy can result.
