Trivia

I'm no Deanna Durbin fan but I have to admire her for getting away from it all at such a young age and retiring to France. This was one of her last films.

By chance, it fell into my collection and I have wound up watching it on dreary weekend afternoons. I was surprised to learn that it bore several viewings. If only modern romantic comedies could be so light and unworldly as this.

Like in a good sitcom, the secondary characters support this film. But the two leads carry it.
