Two Smart Girls: A Deanna Durbin and Judy Garland Centenary Celebration

Exactly one hundred years ago, two babies were born who changed Hollywood. Through their luminous screen presence and golden voices, they transformed movie-making, gave hope to millions through some of the darkest days in recent history, and, after catapulting to fame overnight as the stars of the most popular movies of the 1930s, they became timeless movie icons and lifelong rivals.


Deanna Durbin (a Canadian from Winnipeg) and Judy Garland’s early films are fascinating snapshots of two young women, destined for greatness. This retrospective is a way to relive the magic and timelessness of Old Hollywood.
