  1. Great, glad you both enjoyed it. I especially was happy with the wonderful tribute Robert Osborne gave Deanna, He said every single thing I hoped he would, he nailed it exactly word for word what I had hoped he would say. He said wonderful things about her before movie started as well as after the movie. In case anybody missed it, he covered everything, from being more successful and popular than Judy Garland, that Louie B Mayer wanted to keep Deanna and let Judy go, but that a clerical error/ mix up took place, this is documented in every book ever written about the situa
  2. Just wanted to add one more thing...Her films have been shown...PBS showed quite a few of her very best as well as TV Ontario . PBS Showed them in very successful membership drives Between PBS and TV Ontario, I watched and taped Three Smart Girls, Three Smart Girls Grow Up, First Love, 100 man and a girl, Mad about Music , His Butlers Sister and It Started with Eve/ Also Christmas Holiday and Lady On a train The wonderful man on TVO that hosted Saturday Night at The Movies ..TV Ontario was Elwy Yost, he is no longer with us He was a huge fan of Deanna Durbin, and showed all fi
  3. Excellent!!! Excellent ! Very accurate and very well said...Thank You so much for saying what I wanted to say
  4. You would know better than all the Hollywood books I have looked up her name in, more than all the movie historians I have read comments of etc So yes I yield to you over all others LOL Hey I like WC Fields btw, have seen all his pictures Even in her first film, Three Smart Girls...It lists everybody that is in it in the opening credits, then it says at the very end of the introductions...

  5. Thank You, I had already contacted them at every email available Deanna Durbin Society is also hoping for a tribute day
  6. For those of you that said her films were not classic etc She saved Universal from bankruptcy, when she was at MGM, the top guy said let the fat one go, referring to Judy Garland, that is absolutely true, he meant let Judy go Universal immediately picked her up and she saved the studio She worked with the best in the business, top actors wanted to be in her films, from Charles Lawton, to Franchot Tone, to Arthur Treacher, fabulous actors, she also had great comedic timing She was the highest paid actress in Hollywood for a time, she left the business of her own accord, turned d
  7. I love TCM, but I have to say I am deeply disappointed that they have not even attempted to show any of her films since she died a few weeks ago. Deanna Durbin was a Huge star, I have seen many times TCM change schedule for far lesser stars, I am offended for Deanna.. And deeply disappointed. TCM for some reason has only shown 2 or 3 of her movies ever, and imho they need to get the rights to show all of her films Three Smart Girls, Three Smart Girls Grow Up, First Love,His Butlers Sister,The Amazing Mrs Holiday,It Started With Eve, 100 man and a girl, Mad About Music...I could go
