Deanna Durbin Sits Under a Hairdryer While Taking Her Breakfast

Deanna Durbin must have faced a filming schedule so hectic that day that she had to eat breakfast while getting made up!

Deanna Durbin was a highly popular singer and actress who was active during the mid-‘30s until the late ‘40s. At one time she was the US’ top-salaried woman, having starred in numerous successful musical films such as “Three Smart Girls” (1936), “It Started with Eve” (1941), and “Christmas Holiday” (1944). The photo above was taken on the set of her only Technicolor film, the American musical Western “Can’t Help Singing” in 1944, supposedly while she’s having breakfast. The movie was directed by Frank Ryan and also starred Robert Paige.

Here’s a video clip of Deanna performing “Can’t Help Singing!”
