From February to April 1933, Rodgers & Hart teamed with Moss Hart on a musical adaptation of an Hongarian play about a banker whose wish comes true when he married and angel. The film - I Married An Angel (MGM production #1116) - was intended as a vehicle for Jeanette MacDonald. It was jettisoned, according to Rodgers, when Metro boss Louis B. Mayer decided that fantasies were uncommercial. In 1938 I Married An Angel became a Broadway musical and used some of the material written in 1933. Four years later it became a film musical starring Nelson Eddy and Jeanette MacDonald.
