Mainly a vehicle for the looks and charms of Durbin, NICE GIRL? attempted to give the budding starlet a more mature role after a string of successes posing her as a teenager. The weak story has Durbin portraying a girl with a crush on Tone, a professor visiting her family in a suburb of New

York City. To get the chance to drive Tone home to New York, Durbin causes him to miss his train. On the drive and in Tone's apartment Durbin attempts several naive advances toward the older man, but each time is met with a mild though pointed rebuff. This sends the girl back to her hometown

sweetheart, Stack, but numerous rumors surface about her and Tone. Tone comes back to set everything straight. Durbin gives her role the needed charm, but comes off as being much too innocent, more the fault of the scriptwriters than the actress. The supporting parts, particularly those of Brennan

as a lovesick postman and Benchley as the confused father, are the high points in this production. Durbin sings five songs: "Love at Last" (Eddie Cherkose, Jacques Press), "Perhaps" (Aldo Franchetti, Andreas De Segurola), "Beneath the Lights of Home," "Thank You America" (Bernie Grossman, Walter

Jurmann), and "The Old Folks at Home" (Stephen Foster).
