Deanna Durbin on the front covers of Look magazines:





Look was a bi-weekly, general-interest magazine published in Des Moines, Iowa from 1937 to 1971, with more of an emphasis on photographs than articles. A large-size magazine of 11 inches by 14 inches, it was generally considered the also-ran to Life magazine.

A shrewd salesman named Mitchell Hamilburg got interested in Deanna Durbin when he saw a preview of her 1936 debut movie called THREE SMART GIRLS. He was the Los Angeles representative of the Touraine Company, a New York sportswear house, and he figured Deanna would be good for a line of trademarked children’s dresses. When Touraine rejected the idea, he signed a personal agreement with Deanna's father James Durbin and threw away his job. For a variable down payment and 5 percent of the wholesale gross, he licensed the Deanna Durbin trademark to eleven different manufacturers. Cotton dresses made by Roseneau of Philadelphia and silk dresses made by Teen Frocks of New York had a retail sale of about a million dollars. Sportswear (made by Touraine), pajamas, robes, hats, bags, dolls, records, songbooks, and music retailed for another million. Cool

The St. Vital Museum in Winnipeg makes note of Deanna Durbin's origin. It has a book of files and some 1940's newspaper clippings, including a list of films Deanna made between 1936-1948. "She was one of the biggest stars in the world" says Bob Holliday, president of the St. Vital Historical Society.
