Happy Birthday to Deanna Durbin

From her debut in “Three Smart Girls in 1936 to 1948’s “For the Love of Mary, Ms. Edna Mae Durbin brought a sincere sweetness and a genuine humility to her Hollywood career. In a town and an industry that is built on worship of the star (most times self-adulation as well) Deanna was the proverbial “breath of fresh air”.  She left film work after her last role in “For the Love of Mary”, staying true to her decision, granting only one interview after 1949, that in 1983 to film historian David Shipman.

It is nigh unto Christmas, so treat you and yours to the influence of a wonderful voice, dear-heart  demeanor and an  effervescent performances by buying one or more of her films. Happy Christmas.
