Girl next door from the 30’s and total hottie (in the 30s) Deanna Durbin died at the spry age of 91.

Durbin was known for performing songs like “It’s Raining Sunbeams,” “Home Sweet Home,” and “Waltzing in the Clouds,” in her films.  She was also easy on the eyes.

Git SOME!

The singer who had people flocking into movie theaters during the depression was cast by the studio system as “the girl next door.”  This never set well with her and she never identified with it.  Oh, and she was totally hot.

In 1944, she decided to go against type in the movie “Christmas Holiday” where she played a hooker…. Wait wait wait… a hooker?   In 1944?  In a Christmas movie?!?!?

“Christmas Holiday” is a noir film where an ex-hooker (Durbin) retells the story of how her marriage declines over time after her husband kills a bookie…. Pa-rump-a-pum-pum….

At 14, Durbin auditioned to do the voice of Snow White and was told by Walt Disney that she was too old.  The he kicked her out of the office because he had Hitler on hold, long distance.

In the forties, Durbin said “to hell with this,” moved to France and lived in obscurity with her husband and two kids.  Which was a shame, because she was really hot.

This hit goes to: Gianna!  Yes, Gianna is on a roll!  Last week with EL Konningtower and now Deanna!  She is a mere 20 points behind NDIT!

Happy pooling,
