The Moviegoer


Possibly because Deanne Durbin's formerly mature voice has now reached old age, possibly because other parts of her anatomy are now becoming mature, Miss Durbin's producers have given her a rest from opera and confine her vocal activities to two light songs.

"That Certain Age," which opened last night at the Memorial, presents one of the most vicious triangles ever screened, for to the utter confusion of Jackie Cooper, Miss Durbin bestows her love on Melvyn Douglas. The absorbing problem of how to cure a girl of her first "crush" is well handled by her parents(Irene Rich and John Haliday) and the urbane Mr. Douglas, but may not appeal to undergraduates as much as the accompanying football farce, "Mr. Doodle(Joe Penner) Kicks Off."
