Deanna Durbin Sings Silent Night

I watch this scene from Lady on a Train (1945) every year, because it gives me a feeling of peace that I feel should be a part of the season, but because of the chaos of celebration and preparation often isn't. Now in an increasingly chaotic world, I find it even more comforting and inspiring. I hope Deanna Durbin knew how much joy she spread by simply sharing her voice.

Happy Holidays, Solstice, New Year or whatever it is that inspires you to eat, drink and be merry. Thank you for reading.


  1. Seems to me that"Christmas Story" is an opening into what might have been!

  2. She certainly could have done a lot as a dramatic actress, though she definitely would not have shined as she did in lighter fare. Still, interesting to think about.
