‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"it is a lousy movie and Hepburn's performance, after some strikingly enigmatic opening moments, is embarrassingly bad."

"Hepburn won the first of her four Oscars for playing a brash, aspiring actress from Vermont determined to succeed at all costs, just like she was in real life at the time."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Morning Glory is a great story with Hollywood glamour and exceptional performances."
‑ Diana Saenger, Classic Movie Guide
"Antique Hepburn vehicle that holds up only moderately."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
