On the run from a crime he didn't commit, Curtis hides out on the isolated farm of Craven and Jean, his blind daughter. At first he plans to rob the pair and run off, but he remains behind and is reformed by the girl. Originally intended as an episode in FLESH AND FANTASY, the film was

padded out with an extra 35 minutes of new footage (easily distinguishable). It is surprising to realize when seen today that DESTINY, with its fairy tale-like blending of beauty, mysticism, and horror, had few champions in its day. Nor did Gloria Jean--then a teenage soprano and deemed to be a

threat to Universal's reigning songstress, Deanna Durbin--whose career soon after went into a steep decline. Oddly cast in DESTINY was McDonald, the studio's top tap dancer, who not only did not dance in the film but did not even walk, playing her entire role behind the wheel of a car.
