Anne Frank & Deanna Durbin

Anne Frank & Deanna Durbin

Deanna Durbin, the movie singing-star, was born in 1921, and apparently still lives in a farmhouse outside Paris. She retired from the movies at an early age, and has resisted all efforts to bring her back ““ including a possible offer to sing in “My Fair Lady.”

From Wikipedia:

“Such was Durbin’s international fame and popularity that diarist Anne Frank pasted her picture to her bedroom wall in the Achterhuis where the Frank family hid during World War II. The picture can still be seen there today, and was pointed out by Frank’s friend Hannah Pick-Goslar in the documentary film Anne Frank Remembered.”
