Big Brown Eyes
Joan Bennett is a manicurist who becomes a newspaper reporter. She joins forces with jaunty detective Cary Grant to get the goods on a particularly vicious insurance racket. Bennett unwittingly puts her life in danger by dating a supposedly above-board socialite (Walter Pidgeon) who is actually the brains behind the criminal operation. Big Brown Eyes is an enigma; every time we think we're in for a screwball comedy, something awful happens to jolt us back to reality. It's hard to lightly dismiss such scenes as the shooting death of a baby in its stroller. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Offbeat mix of comedy and mystery, inventively styled by Raoul Walsh."
‑ Michael E. Grost, Classic Film and Television
"...elevated by the uniformly engaging performances."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Grant e Bennett formam uma dupla divertida, mas a trama é medíocre e o tom cômico do filme é comprometido em função da péssima decisão de encenar a morte violenta de um bebê."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
