Mad About Music (1938)

100 MINUTES, USA
DIRECTOR: NORMAN TAUROG
CAST: DEANNA DURBIN, GAIL PATRICK, HERBERT MARSHALL

Gwen (Deanna Durbin), a student at an exclusive Swiss school creates a fictitious father to replace the father lost as a child. When an enemy becomes suspicious, Gwen produces one: an English tourist met at a station. The film juggles this, and teen romance, and songs, without losing its footing on the marzipan Swiss mountains.

It Started With Eve (1941)

90 MINUTES, USA
DIRECTOR: HENRY KOSTER
CAST: DEANNA DURBIN, ROBERT CUMMINGS, CHARLES LAUGHTON, MARGARET TALLICHET

The popular Deanna is now the party pressed into deception: a stranger convinces her to pose as his fiancée, to introduce her to his dying father. The father recovers, the real fiancée returns. Durbin sings through it all, playing the sweet, girl-next-door role she would soon tire of, though this is a more adult version.
