My grandmother was a huge Grace Moore & Dorothy Kirsten fan. I have a full scrap book full of articles signed autographed pictures, I also have what appears to be a fan club newsletter called The Melody, I can not find any information on it. On the Morbid side I have a clipping of the plane crash picture.Please help

I rented her movie and feel in love with her. I am a singer myself and know a God blessed voice when I hear it. And what charisma! She was lovely and so very delightful as an actress. I hope to find more of her movies and music. One Night of Love was amazing! Thank you for this web site memorializing her music and too short life.

I was just watching TCM and wondered who that marvelous soprano was. I'm so impressed by her biography and saddened that she died before her time. Bravo!

Me and My wife have lived in Jellico Tn for most of our lives. We now live in Florida where I am stationed. I brag on Jellico everywhere I go. And I always mention Grae Moore. People who have never heard of Jellico know Grace Moore. Thank you for this site, it is awesome.

I work at an auction house in Chattanooga TN, where we sold a bedroom set that dates back to the 18 century that was owned by Grace Moore. Her Great-niece consigned it to us.

Do you have a photo of Grace as Manon showing the staff supposedly given to her by Mary Garden? This staff was then said to have been passed to Dorothy Kirsten. The staff in Dorothy''s memorabilia may be this item, although it should be authenticated. A photo or recollection would help to do so.

My mom (Shirley McDade) has fond memories of Grace. She has always talked about Grace''s mom and admired Grace''s talent. Those stories were part of my upbringing. I have seen Grace in old movies and it is nice to see her website

I was just looking through the many interesting photoes and posters of Grace Moore, when I found out that MGM had once produced a movie about our own swedish 19th-century soprano and megastar Jenny Lind (who can be found on the back of every swedish 50 kronor-bill) and in the leading role Grace Moore, of course! I would like to ask anyone who reads this If that movie has been released on DVD or VHS. Unfortunately, the 3 swedish TV-channels have never bothered to broadcast it. Perhaps they are unaware of it´s existance. I will write an e-mail to all three channels,suggesting them to do just that. But if anyone knows anything about Grace Moore´s movies on DVD or VHS, please send me an e-mail. I really would appreciate it.

I am making contact again with all of the Moore family to say that I am doing a lecture this Saturday on the family history of Clare in which Grace will play a part.Grace''s father was the brother of my great grandmother Mary Moore. If members of the family would like to contact me, I would love to talk to you via the net.

All good wishes

Not much swedes writing here although there is a swedish connection to Grace Moore.That is she died in the same plane-crash as His Royal Highness Prince Gustav Adolphus of Sweden. He was the father of our present day Head-of-State His Majesty King Carl XVI Gustav who has been the Sweish Head of State since the death of his grandfather in 1973. The Homepage of the National Danish Radio have some really interesting historical recordings to listen to from 1947 among them an interwiew made by the danish radio with Grace Moore the last evening she lived. Next day the planecrash occured and she died.

Just thought I would say that I really find this site a wonderful find. Would like to see more personal information included for those who may be interested.



On a side note, I am Grace Moore’s second cousin and have several stories that my father William told me over the years. Just thought I would say hi.

Thought I''d share a story that I remember George Burns told during a roast of Jack Benny.



George was known as the comedian''s comedian, and one of the few capable of making Jack Benny laugh at the drop of a hat. Anyway, Edward G. Robinson was hosting a private party for Grace Moore about the time her picture (One Night of Love) was coming out in 1934. At some point during the party, Grace was asked to sing the title song from the movie for the guests, to which she obliged. As the guests set up a couple of rows of chairs to listen to her sing, George Burns leaned forward and told Jack Benny that \"it would be very rude of him to laugh when she starting singing\". Of course the minute Grace started to sing, Jack Benny begins to laugh... and continued to laugh. George''s punch line... \"See, I don''t make Jack Benny laugh... Grace Moore makes Jack Benny laugh\".

I would love to have mor information on the images on this site





I chanced to bring a movie home for my mother from the victoria public library. it is One Night of Love and is a Columbia Pictures home video, 3500 W Olive Ave, Burbank, CA 91505

copyright 1934 renewed 1962



my mother is french and trained in opera in Toronto as a young woman and recalls seeing this movie in the theatre with her mother in the early 30''s. they saw it 3 times and my mother sneaked back twice more, even skipping a music lesson to do so. Her mother, my grandmother bears an uncanny resemblance to the fair-haired Moore and my mother is so like the final stage character in the Madame Butterfly performance that I am certain this movie played straight into my grandmother''s ambitions for her daughter.



it has been a treasured find for us and hope that you can find a copy too.

Your web-site is a moving tribute to Grace Moore. Years ago passing through Tennessee from Fla. to begin my medical internship in St. Louis I stopped in Jellico and had the good fortune to meet and chat with a wonderful lady. Her name was Goldie Garber, a childhood friend of Miss Moore''s. We chatted for over two hours, and she showed me some beautiful portraits of Grace, including a beautiful 3-dimensional life-like facial portrait. She filled me in on many anecdotes of Miss Moore''s life both the triumphs and tragedies. I corresponded with Ms Garber for many years until her death.She would have been thrilled with your tribute.

I am related to Grace Moore on my mother''s side and am fascinated by her life. I also have made my career as a singer, so I think it is interesting that the musical genes have been passed on. I enjoyed this site and would love more information about Ms. Moore.

This is a fascinating site! I came to try to find the name of the movie Ms. Moore made in which she portrays a singer who is discovered in a remote location by a famous conductor(?) who hones her skills, making her famous. They fall in love, of course. In the final scene, they are performing Madame Butterfly, and it just brings tears to your eyes. It really is a wonderful film. I saw it around 1988 at the Sailors and Soldiers Memorial Auditorium in Chattanooga, TN, when a series of old classic films, including SunValley with Sonya Henning, were being shown. Perhaps someone could write back to refresh my memory of the name of the film I described above. I would love to see it again! Thanks for the site. I''ll be back, I''m sure. !


Moderator Comment: One Night Of Love is the movie you are speaking of. Thanks for visiting our site.

I''ve seen \"So This is Love\" with Kathryn Grayson and I thought Grace Moore had such an interesting life. Seeing this movie has triggered my love for opera. I''m only 12, but I''ve been taking voice lessons for about a year. So far, I love every Italian Aria that I''ve done!

My Grandmother grew up in Jellico,TN. She knew Grace Moore and even sang with her;

she also knew Homer Rodeheaver Despite what has been said about Jellico it is still

a friendly town with 2 famous

people coming from that little

town. My Mother was born in Jellico, Ky but they lived

on the TN. side.

Just traveling south last weekend! had to stop for gasoline and Jellico was the town we stopped at! What a dump and then to advertise that this is Grace Moore''s home place! before i advertised anything i think i wouls clean Jellico up and take a few of those old buildings down that isnt used any more! then you could have a town to be proud of and not be ashame to put Miss Moore''s museam in your town!


Moderator Comment: Beauty is in the eye of the beholder I suppose and you cannot change the fact that Jellico was where Ms. Moore grew up. I forwarded your comment to the Mayor of Jellico. Thanks for sharing your perspective.

Hello I just wanted to add that i think the city of jellico should get a museum in the city and continue to get mrs. moores gowns and belongings from university of tennessee knoxville, everyone knows shes not from knoxville and it would be a shame to let them stay if she is a jellico native, thanks.and shes by far a legend... for all of opra..


Moderator Comment: We suggested the idea of a museum to the Jellico Tourism Dir with the addition of the video of her life but he did not express an interest in the project.

While at an auction, my parents bought Ms. Moore''s silver punch bowl with cups, an engagement ring, and a porcelain goddess named \"Hoti\" (not sure of spelling). My parents passed these items on to me upon their death, and I have kept them with fond memories of Ms. Moore and her beautiful voice.

Thanks for paying homage to a deserving icon. My father directed her first \"Carmen\". He was quite fond of her. Let me know if your play comes to Los Angeles.
