Rose Marie ★★★ Indian Love Call 1936

An opera star falls in love with the mountie who captured her escaped convict brother. Hollywood legend has it that when a British singer was presented with the first line in “Indian Love Song,” which is “When I'm calling you-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo,” the confused performer sang, “When I'm calling you, double oh, double oh, double oh…” Maybe true, maybe not, but funny anyway. Classic MacDonald-Eddy operetta. Remade in 1954. ♫Indian Love Call; Pardon Me, Madame; The Mounties; Rose Marie; Totem Tom Tom; Just for You; Tex Yeux; St. Louis Blues; Dinah. 112m/B VHS .
