Universal's beloved singing sensation receives the full star treatment with this five-disc set.

MAD ABOUT MUSIC (1938)
In order to fit in with her classmates, a lonely 14-year-old American girl in a boarding school in Switzerland invents a fictitious father which leads to comical complications. Nominated for 4 Academy Awards® including Best Cinematography and Best Music Scoring and co-starring Herbert Marshall, Deanna Durbin’s third feature film features a music score including “A Serenade To The Stars,” “Chapel Bells,” and her rendition of “Ave Maria.”

THAT CERTAIN AGE (1938)
When young Alice develops a serious crush on her father’s dashing reporter friend, she loses interest in her teenage boyfriend and their plans to put on a fundraising variety show. Melvyn Douglas and Jackie Cooper co-star in this charming farce and the movie garnered two Academy Award® nominations, including one for the song, “My Own.” Billy Wilder and Charles Brackett were among the screenplay’s contributing writers.

THREE SMART GIRLS GROW UP (1939)
Penny has a knack for matchmaking and realizes that her own two sisters Joan and Kay could use her unsolicited help since one of them is in love with the other’s boyfriend. Often noted as Deanna Durbin’s first mature role, this breezy, lighthearted valentine to Durbin is directed by Henry Koster (The Bishop’s Wife, 1947) and co-stars Robert Cummings and William Lundigan.

BECAUSE OF HIM (1946)
A young waitress with dreams of stardom tries to pass herself off as an experienced actress and even succeeds in winning the coveted role opposite a famous theatre star when her deception is discovered. Charles Laughton and Franchot Tone are among the distinguished supporting cast and the score by Academy Award®-winning composer Miklos Róssa includes “Good Bye,” “Danny Boy,” and the Rodgers & Hart tune, “Lover.”

FOR THE LOVE OF MARY (1948)
Mary, a White House telephone operator, is so popular with co-workers that even the President of the United States and four Supreme Court justices end up trying to play Cupid for her in this screwball comedy which marked Deanna Durbin’s final screen appearance. The cinematography is by four-time Academy Award® nominee William H. Daniels (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, 1959) and the musical selections include “Moonlight Bay” and “Let Me Call You Sweetheart.”

              This is a great collection for Deanna Durbin fans and has intro's to each movie by Robert Osborne, plus extras like production stills, publicity stills, etc. The picture quality and sound on all of these is excellent. I only hope they will follow this one up with another collection of Deanna's movies in the future!

                                I'm so glad that TCM made this Deanna Durbin collection available. I love her movies. I'm looking forward to more of her movies to be released on DVD like Her Butler's Sister!

                                  The movies are clear. Deanna Durbin is a great actress and singer. Maybe TCM can make more bundles of Deanna Durbin movies. Charles Laughton is also fun to watch in Because of Him.
