Director:

 Richard Wallace

Writers:

 Edmund Beloin (screenplay), Edmund Beloin(story)

Stars:

 Deanna Durbin, Charles Laughton, Franchot Tone
 
As appealing as ever in 1946, Deanna Durbin was admittedly getting a bit long in tooth for her ingenue-like role in Because of Him. Durbin is cast as Kim Walker, an aspiring actress determined to become the protegee of famed Broadway actor/producer Sheridan (Charles Laughton). The only person not charmed by Kim's herculean efforts to achieve stardom is playwright Paul Taylor (Franchot Tone), who balks when ordered to write a play for her. But even Taylor is won over by fadeout time, leaving Sheridan, who'd also had designs on Kim, in the lurch. Evidently intended as a "straight" comedy, Because of Him was turned into a musical at the last minute, with a handful of pleasant but irrelevant songs wedged into the proceedings.

  1. Danny Boy the highlight sung by Deanna. 3 Star Review

    Posted by on Dec 2nd 2017

    This was only an average Deanna Durbin movie, but was saved by the most beautiful rendition of "Danny Boy" Deanna needed a more mature plot. She and Charles Laughter are good together. Apart from the song, it did lack sparkle


  2. Deanna Durbin is the best! 5 Star Review

    A light hearted comedy with a sprinkle of music to cheer up any soul!
