Deanna Durbin on The Eddie Cantor Show – Part 3

When Deanna arrived in New York City she was most keen on seeing the Statue of Liberty:

"If you think it is so easy to be a critic, so difficult to be a poet or a painter or film experimenter, may I suggest you try both? You may discover why there are so few critics, so many poets." - Pauline Kael
