PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS She's Growing Up WEDNESDAY, APRIL 27, 1938 To Leave Flal Heels and Go In For Romance . Gradually . I!y FAUI, HARRISON NBA Service SlafT C'nrrrspoiidrnL HOLLYWOOD.—Deamin Durblii is an Ingenue now—still very dewy, but headed for romance. It's all being planned wiUi the utmost care. Not since she went to work in .Hollywood about 20 months ago lias three been any venl throat of a gangling, awkward interval in the enormously , valuable young star's development. Indeed, .so maturely graceful was she that the studio considered adding .1 couple of years to her ngc, which was 13. H Is now 1ft. "Anyway," she (old mo, "Mi mil grow any more. I'm 5 feet 3'_ inches, nnc! already the titlR-st fc male In our family." . She looked al the chops and haked potato on her luncheon pluic and sighed. "I won't weigh am more either. I'm 112 now. I guess I'll have to start worrying about Ural. 1 ' ' •' .. Actually Miss 'Durbln doesn't seem to worry about much of anything. This by no means Indicates childish irresponsibility. She is poised, confident and rigidly self- (IJfciplincd. In nil interview she is inclined, to be cool, bill honest, answering questions with n "yes' or "no" until pressed. She never equivocates with a "perhaps" or a "maybe." Hired by Universal nt a salary of $150 a week, which she re- iceived during the production of "Three Smart Girls." Dcamia Is now earning $1250 weekly, mainly as a result of Die eflorts of hi;r agent, Jack Sherrill. She holds a contract with six-month options calling for small increases. When she was singing over (lie nlr slic was earning $400 a week for that job. ' 'Every penny of her savings from the various sources has ten going into a trust fund, so Hint her financial future will be secure. Shcmll. incidentally, is not being sued for an accounting by Mrs. Rita Stamvoocl Warner. who) claims to be the "discoverer" of Deanna. Maturity by Easy Steps If Miss Din-bin Is nol worrying about her future, -her studio is taking every, passible precaution for it. Universal's problem is to guide tts singing prodigy through cinematic adolescence into young womanhood, with cnch successive picture leaning a bit, more toward romance. Besides her .voice, which is saltl ' to be mature and safe from change or strain, the actress' charms are ' her healthy beauty and whole- seme naturalness. She must not be arch or r.marty or amorously lirecocimis. Univmnl's council of elders has agreed that the faintest taint, of things would do her Irreparable harm. At'the same time, her studio is anxious to bring her along as rapidly as possible. The visual transition tor the screen will be merely a matter of taking away the hair ribbons and frilly dresses and flat-heeled shoes. The film, to go into production in a couple of weeks will be called "That Certain Age." In it, I >vns able to tell Miss Din-bin, she will be a rich man's pampered daughter who awakens to certain realities and decides not to be a parasite. She will have two 'teen oge suitors, a rich ond a poor one. There will be no real love fcciies, but audiences will" know how she feels about the lucky boy, Alter that, the studio will conie right out on the theater marquee.* and announce Deanna Durbin in "first Love." The story has not ytl been adapted, but. the chances are that Deanna will get herself kissed. There also has been some secret discussion of buying Booth Tarkington's "Seventeen"" for her Future I.ooks Musical Although these assignments seem essentially dramatic, with music sandwiched in. Miss Durbin considers them in the opposite light. "I think of myselt as a singer" she said. "The acting is Just something that I have to do between wings." I asked what she intended to . do with her money. She said she will save it. If she were nol working at anything, she would travel. She would like to make a conceit tour, and perhaps apix>ar In a musical on Broadway, but ^mcst of all she wants to join the Metropolitan Opera Company. Plenty of assurances have been Civen Miss Durbin that she will be welcome at the Met when she is ready. No movies? "Yes," she said, '-I'll do both. A season there, two pictures here. It has been done; look at Grace Moore and Lily pans A Complicated Mfc Miss Durbin does not expect to begin another regular radio pro gram next fall.
