Durbin made her first film appearance in 1936 withJudy GarlandinEvery Sunday, and subsequently signed a contract withUniversal Studios. Her success as the ideal teenage daughter in films such asThree Smart Girls(1936) was credited with saving the studio from bankruptcy.In 1938 Durbin was awarded theAcademy Juvenile Award.
Later, as she matured, Durbin grew dissatisfied with the girl-next-door roles assigned to her, and attempted to portray a more womanly and sophisticated style. Thefilm noirChristmas Holiday(1944) and thewhodunitLady on a Train(1945) were, however, not as well received as her musical-comedies and romances had been.
Durbin withdrew from Hollywood and retired from acting and singing in 1949. She married film producer-director Charles Henri David in 1950, and the couple moved to a farmhouse in the outskirts ofParis. Since then she has withdrawn from public life.
