Odds And Ends In The Entertainment World:  When you click in Hollywood, the moola really rolls in. Just about a year ago Deanna Durbin was earning $150 a week. Today, while making "Mad About Music," she draws $2,500 weekly from the studio, earns a heavy sum from broadcasting and records, and is picking up in the neighborhood of $100.000 a year from fashion work. Nice work if you can get it...
