Product Description

Amazon.ca

The highest-paid female star in the world at age 14 and retired from show business at 27, Deanna Durbin, "Winnipeg's Sweetheart," was a fresh and joyful presence in some of the most charming musicals of the late Depression years. This five-movie set, long-awaited by her still-enthusiastic fans, includes her hit debut, Three Smart Girls.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Mixed bag of Durbin Delights! Jan. 10 2012
By Robert Badgley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Winnipeg,Canada's own Deanna Durbin is in the spotlight here in this six film-fest from Universal studios.However it is a curious mixture of both good and bad films with two of my faves The Amazing Mrs. Holiday and Three Smart Girls Grow Up,particularly noticeable due to their absence.Let us hope Universal comes clean with the rest of her entries sometime in the future.In the meantime we must "relish" what little dribs and drabs the big boys throw at us,mustn't we?
"Three Smart Girls"(released in Dec/36) was Deanna's major debut on screen and she,as they say,murdered them at the box office.Her major attributes were her freshness,her utterly disarming charm and of course that angelic voice.She could sing the NYC telephone book and it would have sounded beautiful.All the fabulous attributes that made her a star are here in spades for all to see,as we literally see a star born before our amazed eyes.The plot is relatively simple.Three girls who live with their mother in Switzerland,plot to get back their bon vivant of a father,engaged to be married to a boor of a social climber,in New York.It co-starred Mischa Auer,Charles Winninger,Nan Grey and a very young Ray Milland,among others.Five stars.
"Something in the Wind"(released in July/47)has Deanna as a female disc jockey by the name of Mary Collins(the camera really makes hay with her opening number perched on a desk.Maybe she should have been a desk jockey?).It seems the recently deceased owner of the radio station has left a substantial sum to a Ms.Collins;Deanna's aunt(who she lives with),not her.His grandson who now runs the station is none too happy about the situation and mistakenly thinks Deanna is the beneficiary.Alot of funny mistaken circumstances come out this film until it winds down to its conclusion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deanna Durbin, Canadian star Feb. 17 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have always liked this actress, so it was nice to find a whole collection of her films on one disc. Some of the themes are silly, but she`s so talented as a pianist and singer that it really doesn`t matter!

5.0 out of 5 stars Why can't we get more of this Canadian? Jan. 4 2008
By Chris S
Format:DVD
This was a great find with musicals, drama, comedy, and a "whodunit". I didn't know what to expect when I ordered it as sadly I had never heard of her, even though I have grown up in Canada and watched "old" films ever since I was little.

I found it to be a great buy, witty and charming, and enjoyed by various age groups. I wanted to purchase more of her movies however, although you can buy all of them (about 21) on the United Kingdom Amazon site, this is the only one avaliable in Canada so far. The ones in England are in zone 2 and not playable on most DVD's in Canada. Sadly Canada does not boost Canadian artists or recognize contributions by many of their own, unless there is some sort of controversy created. I never knew that she once was more popular/well known than Shirley Temple or that she was Winston Churchill's favorite star. (She also held the highest paid actress title for decades)

For a little more background I am attaching a clip from the IMDb site:
"The girl who would be known as "Winnipeg's Sweetheart" was born at Grace Hospital on December 4, 1921, as Edna Mae Durbin. In her early childhood there were no obvious signs that one day she would be a bigger box office attraction than Shirley Temple. Renamed Deanna Durbin for show business purposes, by age 14 she was the most highly paid female star in the world. Her major motion pictures were Three Smart Girls (1936), Mad About Music (1938) and That Certain Age (1938). By the time she was 18 her income was $250,000 a year. Her voice was often described as "natural and beautiful" and her version of "One Fine Day" from Madame Butterfly, with Leopold Stokowski conducting the orchestra, became a classic. Deanna was a Hollywood star in every way. There were Deanna Durbin dolls and dresses.

By A Customer

I am so happy to hear that these Deanna Durbin movies are coming to dvd.I have seen all of these movies. I agree with the viewer from Ventura California. Please transfer all of Deanna Durbin's movies on to dvd. My favorite Deanna Durbin movies are "His Butler's Sister" and "Spring Parade". I hope that they will come out on dvd, in the near future.
