News & Interviews for Three Smart Girls
Critic Reviews for Three Smart Girls
Film is a sentimental comedy and has that rare quality of making an audience feel better for having seen it.
A highly pleasing first cousin to the screwball comedies of the day.
Koster's light musical comedy made debutante Deana Durbin a major star for a decade and was so populr during the Depression that it spawned several (inferior) sequels.
Modest film debut for Deanna Durbin has loads of charm.
Audience Reviews for Three Smart Girls
Strictly unremarkable story elevated by Deanna and a great supporting cast.
Almost like a female version of a Little Rascals plot, Three Smart Girls is the brainless fodder of its time. Despite the charms of the actresses involved, the plot seems ultimately very silly. Good enough to warrant a sequel however.
Durbin's feature film debut (the film was nominated for Best Picture) is a delight from beginning to end, as is Durbin; she sings "Someone to Care for Me" and "My Heart Is Singing."
