As a salute to Deanna for her 91st birthday this December 4th, and as part of its' ongoing salute to Universal's 100th birthday, the Stanford Theatre in Palo Alto, CA will be holding a month long Deanna Durbin Film Festival during which it will show all of her films.

 

Here is a link to the program/schedule:

The Stanford Theatre is my home away from home as I live just 20 minutes from Palo Alto. They have been running a Universal Film Festival, and the Deanna Durbin tribute is just part of that lineup. I plan to attend most of the double bills of her films as this would be a once in a lifetime chance to see them on the big screen. In fact, I just got home tonight from seeing Donald O'Connor and Peggy Ryan in CHIP OFF THE OLD BLOCK, along with another of our board members Countessdelave.

 

markus21 - do you live in the SF Bay area? I would encourage everyone who lives in the area to attend this festival and support all the effort made to put this program together.

Hi Jezebel38:

 

Unfortunately, like ginnyfan, I live on the wrong coast, otherwise I'd make a point of attending as many screenings as I could. I agree that it's important for classic film fans to support programs like this one.

I love Deanna Durbin. My first exposure to her was at a friend's who used to run 16mm films in his living room on Sunday nights. When I got home, I told my pop about the movie I'd just seen and he told me that he was madly in love with DD when he was a kid going to the movies.

I bought a CD collection of her most popular songs years ago and crank it up every now and then.

They are showing films chronologically - James Whale and Margaret Sullavan were some highlights of previous screenings:
