Three Smart Girls Grow Up is a delighful movie about a young girl playing matchmaker to her two sisters. Deanna Durbin has long been one of my favorites and in this film she proves why. She's a natural actress, her voice is beautiful, and the plot of Three Smart Girls Grow Up though slight takes us back to another time. The clothes in the movie are beautiful (in particular an outfit that Nan Grey, playing Deanna's sister, wears early in the movie) and the sets are excellent as well. I'd love to more of Deanna Durbin's films.

Once a young Deanna Durbin burst onto movie screens across America in "Three Smart Girls," saving Universal from bankruptcy, there was never any doubt that producer Joe Pasternak and director Henry Koster would bring the wonderful cast back for another go. In some ways, "Three Smart Girls Grow Up" is even more enjoyable than the original. The story is still innocent and fun-filled, but a bit less juvenile. And the three girls, Durbin, Nan Grey, and Helen Parrish, while still retaining the innocence of the time in which this film was made, have some fine moments opposite a great cast.

Part of the reason for this film's success is Charles Winninger. He is simply delightful as the father of three young women of assorted ages a bit too caught up providing a lavish lifestyle for them to see all the romantic drama going on right under his nose. At Penny's (Deanna Durbin) coming out party, her oldest sister Joan gets engaged to Richard (William Lundigan). Penny senses something wrong, however, and when she discovers her sister Kay (Helen Parrish) in tears, burning a diary that confesses her love for Richard, she takes Binn's (Ernest Cossart) advice and attempts to play matchmaker.

Tall, dark and handsome in this case turns out to be the flute player from her singing class, Harry (Robert Cummings). Cummings, as usual, especially opposite Deanna Durbin, is fuuny and fabulous. Everything goes wrong, of course, and the more complicated and confusing it gets, the more Durbin and Cummings shine. Harry immediately hits it off with the already engaged Joan, rather than Kay, then everyone believes it's Penny who is in love with him!

Format: VHS Tape
In 1936, Universal Studios took a chance on a young girl singer named Deanna Durbin, first showcasing her in the beloved "Three Smart Girls", a movie which reversed the studio's flagging fortunes and established Deanna Durbin as the reigning juvenile box office star. Playing Penny, the youngest of the Craig sisters, she stole moviegoers hearts with her charming performance and soaring soprano voice. Three years later, Durbin returned for the first of two sequels - THREE SMART GIRLS GROW UP (1939).

The story opens during Penny's very first society party, where eldest sister Joan (Nan Grey) announces her engagement to long-time beau Richard (William Lundigan). Everyone greets the news with delight, except middle sister Kay (Helen Parrish) who, Penny later discovers, harbours a strong infatuation for her prospective brother-in-law. Resolving to find a husband for lovesick Kay, Penny recruits one of her musician friends, Harry (Bob Cummings); but the plan backfires when Joan starts taking an interest instead!

This adorable romantic comedy delivers more "Three Smart Girls" magic, complete with most of the original cast (Nan Grey as Joan, Charles Winninger and Nella Walker as the Craig parents). The only major replacement is Helen Parrish--one of Durbin's close friends of the time--who took over the role of middle sister Kay from original actress Barbara Read.

Musical-wise, the film gets off to a cracking start with Durbin singing "Invitation to the Dance" during Penny's first society ball; the other songs include "La Capinera (The Wren)", and "The Last Rose of Summer".

The Craig family saga would come to a fitting end in 1943 with "Hers to Hold". THREE SMART GIRLS GROW UP is a heartwarming family comedy everyone is sure to love.

Deanna Durbin is now a young lady. She was first introduced into the movies in 'three smart girls'as a pre-teen. We loved her then and even more now. Deanna
has it all, fantastic voice, charm and comedic flair. I don't think she ever
made a bad movie. It was like waching your sister grow-up. You will enjoy this film.

Heads are chopped off all over this dvd. I have a vhs copy of this movie and the heads are not chopped off like this. Really, these people need to give all their customers better merchandise than this.
