Among Deanna Durbin's happiest memories of Hollywood would be her two-film collaboration with actor Charles Laughton: 1946's minor Broadway-set comedy Because of Him and this imaginatively scripted gem that remains one of Durbin's best vehicles. In It Started with Eve, Deanna is enlisted to pose as fiancée to Robert Cummings, who's trying to please his (apparently) dying father Laughton. Avoid the Sandra Dee remake I'd Rather Be Rich, and enjoy the clever plot twists and three good tunes found in the original, which marked Durbin's last pre-war picture and the end of her golden age at Universal. --Steven Smith
