I was sad to hear of Deanna Durbin passing, because I hoped she would do another interview before she passed. It's great that she followed through on her dream of living a normal life. I hope that she was happy.
If you'd like to watch a few Durbin flicks in tribute. I wrote about a few of my favorites a few years ago.
Durbin's last interview, in 1983 with David Shipman, is so good. I never get tired of reading it. She seems to have lived well and wisely--Java's Journey
I love the descriptions here of various audience reactions to the flicks in a pre-code film festival. It seems the audience for classic films is growing. Good news!--Cinematically Insane
There were so many great reports from the recent TCM Film Festival. I particularly like the story about Ann Blyth in this one. I can't believe she is 88 years old. She looks about 50, if that--Out of the Past
I can't understand why Cleo Moore wasn't a bigger star. I love her bright, clever screen persona. She's like the bombshell who could also be your best gal pal. After you finish the post, read the first comment for a great story--Criminal Element
