There is a wonderful birthday series going on at the blog West End Dumplings:

Go to Part 1: From Winnipeg to Hollywood (1921 - 1936)

Go to Part 2: A smashing career (1936 - 1949)
Go to Part 3: Whatever happened to Winnepeg's Sweetheart?

Deanna's 26th Birthday in 1947 took place on the set of Up in Central Park.Co-star Albert Sharpe (right) looks on as Deanna blows out the candles on her carousel-shaped cake.


  1. So beautiful! Thank you for sharing. Happy Birthday, Deanna.

  2. Love the picture, Tom! "The Small Carousel In The Park" - which is featured on the birthday cake - is my favorite song in that film.

    Happy Birthday, Ms. Durbin David
