I don't know of any Alex. Durbin makes a brief appearance singing with Judy Garland in 'That's Entertainment', which is available on super 8mm. But I think thats about it.

Phil Sheard of Classic Home Cinema has issued on Super 8 the MGM film "Every Sunday", a 1936 ten minute musical short starring Deanna Durbin and Judy Garland.

Alex

If you have 16mm or Standard (Regular) 8 projectors look out for Castle single reeler MA48 "GEMS OF SONG".

This stars Deanna Durbin and is an excerpt from Universal's 1940 "It's A Date".

The 16mm release was available new between 1949 and 1959. United Kingdom GB Movie-Paks also distributed the 16mm copy.
The Standard (Regular) 8 was available new between 1960 and 1962, I am not sure if Movie-Paks released it on 8mm.
