Trivia

Actually, there were two or three "regular" woman members of the orchestra at this time, cellist Elsa Hilger and two harpists. Further, Eugene Ormandy was the principal conductor of the Philadelphia Orchestra by 1937, not Stokowski. See more »

Charming Deanna Durbin musical
22 July 2003 | by (Ottawa) – See all my reviews

I can't say I'm a fan of Deanna Durbin, but I thought she was very charming and exuberant in "100 Men and a Girl", one of Deanna's biggest vehicles at the time. Deanna plays the daughter of an impoverished musician (Adolphe Menjou, who previously worked with another famous child star Shirley Temple in "Little Miss Marker"). Most of the plot revolves around how Deanna manages to hook up 100 unemployed musicians with a famous orchestra conductor. It may have dated by today's standards but it is worth catching for the music and Deanna's singing talents.
