The girl they call "Winnipeg's Sweetheart," Deanna Durbin, captured the hearts of movie fans everywhere with her irresistible charm and golden voice. From her debut film in 1936 to the release of her last film in 1947, Deanna was an international superstar and box-office sensation. Then at the height of her fame, she walked away from Hollywood forever. Now her movie magic lives on in this special 6-film set, The Deanna Durbin Sweetheart Pack. This rare treasure includes some of her best-loved films, including The Academy Award nominated Three Smart Girls; First Love, a modern riff on the classic Cinderella story; It Started with Eve, a tender-hearted musical farce; Lady on a Train, a crazy who-done-it; and Can't Help Singing, the film that takes Deanna out to the Old West in search of romance and adventure.
Includes: 'Three Smart Girls (1936);' 'First Love (1939);' 'It Started With Eve (1941);' 'Can't Help Singing (1944);' 'Lady on A Train (1945);' and 'Something in the Wind (1947).'

GREAT set of 6 films - so far I have watched 'Three Smart Girls' with Dianna at only 14 years old - quite a talent - and 'Can't Help Singing' a terrific western comedy musical, one of the best I have ever seen.

This "Sweetheart" DVD collection contains 6 light-weight, girl-meets-boy, Rom-Com, Musicals that cover Deanna Durbin's film career from its debut in 1936 (at the age of 15) to its finish in 1947 (at age 26)._____ Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Durbin grew up into an attractive young woman who, not only proved to be a competent actress, but was an accomplished singer with an extraordinary singing voice, as well._____ Personally, I think that Universal Studios totally wasted Durbin's obvious talents by starring her in all of this mindless, predictable fluff, but, the audiences at the time loved her and she was a literal box-office sensation._____ At the absolute height of her career Durbin, then 26, walked away from Hollywood (never to return) over her futile disputes with her studio, demanding to be cast in more sophisticated roles beyond the standard "Chick Flick" routine._____ *Note* - It is out of my respect for singer/actress Deanna Durbin that I rate this DVD collection somewhat higher than I think it really deserves.
