Three Smart Girls is a 1936 musical comedy film. The Craig sisters, played by Barbara Read, Nan Grey and Deanna Durbin in her first feature film role, travel to New York City to prevent their father from remarrying.
They plot to bring their divorced parents, portrayed by Charles Winninger and Nella Walker, back together again. The movie made Durbin a star, and ushered in an eight-year era of successful Deanna Durbin musicals.
It spawned two sequels, Three Smart Girls Grow Up and Hers to Hold. "Three Smart Girls" was later re-made as "The Parent Trap" films under the Disney logo.
