Deanna Durbin had such a fine singing voice that no matter how thin her screenplays were, they were always salvaged somehow whenever she was given an opportunity to sing. I'LL BE YOURS almost proves to be a contradiction to that statement. No matter how charming she is and how competent her co-stars are, there is no doubt after the first twenty minutes that she is wasting her time in a film saddled with a script that nobody can do much about that. The others try hard--William Bendix, Adolphe Menjou and Tom Drake--but nothing helps until Durbin sings.
Durbin tells a white lie to Adolphe Menjou and therein lies the pretext for a story involving her supposed "marriage" to Tom Drake (here sporting an unbecoming mustache). Needless to say, our heroine straightens everything out in a time for the finale and along the way sings a couple of songs, notably "Granada", which, as another viewer noted, is well worth the price of admission. Only Durbin's most ardent fans will appreciate this one.
