Trivia

In the British version of this film, Deanna Durbin's finale was the patriotic favorite, "There'll Always Be an England" (music by Ross Parker and Harry Parr Davies, lyrics by Hugh Charles). Miss Durbin's "Thank You America" (music and lyrics by Walter Jurmann and Bernie Grossman), a song which didn't become popular despite Deanna's commercial single on Decca, closed the U.S. print. Both endings are included on the VHS and DVD release of the movie from Universal Studios. See more »

Wonderful Girl!
26 June 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

No other studio in Hollywood during the 30s and 40s could so beautifully evoke the haunting beauty of small town America than Universal. In the l941 "Nice Girl," a magical Deanna Durbin is set against probably the most ravishing recreation of Somewhere, USA ever put on film. Deanna's house is memorable with its big, wide windows, open to the wind, the cozy den and bedroom. Most haunting of all is when Deanna sings "Old Folks at Home" at a July 4th celebration near a river. Gorgeous photography, shadows, lights, all-American faces are unforgettable as Deanna sings. Remember that this was made just as America began to fight in World War II. The ending is a masterpiece. Deanna sings "Thank you America" in a radiant, thrilling way. the video shows you immediately an alternate ending that was shown in England at that time, "There'll always be an England." Robert Stack is so gorgeous looking you wonder why he didn't become a major star. Wonderful supporting cast, more great music and this all combines to make "Nice Girl?" a much beloved addition to your library. If you don't like music, then study it for its all-American wholesomeness, sincerity and the styles and clothes of a long ago era. A masterpiece!
