Deanna Durbin, 91, Depression-Era Movie Star
"The singing starlet with the bubbly personality and the jewel-tone voice whose enormously popular movies were widely credited with saving Universal Pictures from bankruptcy during the Depression," Durbin peaked in popularity "by her late teens and by her mid-20s [she] had left Hollywood forever, made wealthy by her relatively brief career."
