Deanna Durbin (born Edna Mae Durbin; December 4, 1921 – c. April 20, 2013)[2] was a Canadian-born American actress and singer, who appeared in musical films in the 1930s and 1940s, her singing voice being variously described as being light but full, sweet and unaffected.[according to whom?] With the technical skill and vocal range of a legitimate lyric soprano, she performed everything from popular standards to operatic arias.[citation needed] Durbin made her first film appearance with Judy Garland in Every Sunday(1936), and subsequently signed a contract with Universal Studios. Her success as the ideal teenage daughter in films such as Three Smart Girls(1936) was credited with saving the studio from bankruptcy.[3] In 1938, at the age of 17, Durbin was awarded the Academy Juvenile Award. As she matured Durbin grew dissatisfied with the girl-next-door roles assigned to her, and attempted to portray a more womanly and sophisticated style. Thefilm noir Christmas Holiday (1944) and the whodunit Lady on a Train (1945) were, however, not as well received as her musical-comedies and romances had been. Durbin retired from acting and singing in 1949, and withdrew from public life. She married film producer-director Charles Henri David in 1950, and the couple moved to a farmhouse near Paris.
