Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 or region free DVD player in order to play.Much praised and much missed after its premature cancellation, Firefly is the first SF TV series to be conceived by Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy and cocreator of Angel. Set five centuries in the future, it is a show where the mysterious personal pasts of the crew of the tramp spaceship Serenity continually surface.
Jeanette MacDonald portrays Nina Maria, who sings, dances and spies for Spain during the Napoleonic Wars. Early in the story, Nina is eager to discourage an amorous French officer, so she feigns interest in Don Diego (Allan Jones). Now, she has a bigger problem ' discouraging Don Diego, who is actually a French counterspy. His mission: shadow Nina Maria! Rudolf Friml's 1912 work provides the basis for this memorable musical that keeps some original songs (including "Giannina Mia"), revises others and introduces a now-classic charmer: "The Donkey Serenade" (engagingly set to the clip-clop of a mule-drawn coach), which became Jones' signature song throughout his career.
