opens a short season of films starring the ever-popular singing star Deanna Durbin
Today with Herbert Marshall
Sent to a Swiss finishing school, 14-year-old Gloria Harkinson boasts to her friends about her explorer father. Unfortunately she is forced to ' 'adopt' a visiting musician as her missing parent. Matters are made even more complicated by the arrival of her glamorous mother from Hollywood. This enchanting comedy gave Deanna Durbin one of her best early roles.
Plus, of course, a variety of songs varying from ' Ave Maria' to ' I love to whistle'.
Screenplay by BRUCE MANNING and FELIX JACKSON , based on a story by MARECELLA BURKE and FREDERICK KOHNER Directed by NORMAN TAUROG
