DEANNA DURBIN WALKS ALONG TRAIN TRACKS !
18 April 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Recently viewed "Lady on a Train" and was surprised to see Deanna Durbin walking along an elevated train track in New York City. It was very mysterious seeing her actually viewing a murder on a train headed for Grand Central Station. The entire film portrayed great old buildings and old lofts in the 1940's. Her singing of "Night & Day" in a Circus Cafe and her great supporting cast with Ralph Bellamy(Dr.in Rosemary's Baby) and Dan Duryea(oldest actor to start a career in acting) was great entertainment. The director, Charles David kept you spellbound as to who really DONE IT! Deanna Durbin financially helped Universal Pictures over the years, however, her acting roles fell below her standards and she retired and married director Charles David and lives in Paris, France. (She is in her 80's)
