Durbin movie seems weak...?
9 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'll Be Yours may not be one of Deanna Durbin's best movies, but it really is not a bad movie. The other actors in this movie are great, especially William Bendix, Adolphe Menjou, Walter Catlett and even Tom Drake. By comparison to most of her movies, it does seem like unbelievable fluff, although her movies are more for entertainment than realism anyway. I mention this, because I'll Be Yours is a remake of The Good Fairy from 1935, with Margaret Sullavan and Herbert Marshall, which seems difficult to believe as it is with the naivety in that movie, but considering Good Fairy takes place in early to mid 1930's Hungary and that Sullavan's character comes from an orphanage and has never seen the real world, the plot is a little more plausible. For I'll Be Yours, The Good Fairy story is updated to 1947 and takes place in New York City, both of which really don't work for this kind of plot, no matter how good the acting is. Deanna seems too sophisticated for the plot, even though they changed the character's background from an orphanage to small town girl, and Tom Drake seems way too naive for an American male of this period. All in all, this is not a bad movie, but one does expect better for this cast.
