[on Deanna Durbin] I was always mad about Deanna. I admired her work enormously. Then she disappeared suddenly. Whatever became of her?

Trivia:

Her soprano was so unique and distinctive, she was once encouraged to go into opera, but declined, feeling that her own interpretive style gave more pleasure to her fans. See more »
