Franchot Tone and Deanna Durbin paired up for their first film Nice Girl? in 1941. At the time, Deanna Durbin was an innocent operatic ingenue just turning 20 years old while Franchot Tone, at 36, was marrying for the second time to young actress Jean Wallace. In Nice Girl?, Franchot's character deems Deanna's character much too young for his own, but in real life, Franchot's new bride was only 18 years old!

here's my post about that one), but I highly recommend Nice Girl? to anyone who enjoys light musical comedies with a bit of romance thrown in for good measure.
