Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Universal survived the Depression thanks to Boris Karloff and Deanna Durbin, the latter horror being a reedy-voiced child star who infected a number of late 30s musicals before creeping puberty ended her career. This is one of her more tolerable vehicles."

"The film doesn't pack any surprises, but ... there's sometimes a happy reassurance that comes from watching a movie you know won't surprise you."

"Music by Mozart, Verdi and others, plus songs sung by the youthful Deanna, fill a brisk and rather charming 85 minutes."

"Ever so cloying as it serves up dollops of sweetness, but it's entertaining, satisfyingly fairy tale-like and put over with much skill."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"There are many child stars who have been horrors to work with, but that was not the case with Deanna Durbin, who was surely one of the most agreeable tykes ever to don greasepaint."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Deanna Durbin's most popular film, which stars conductor Leopold Stokowski, was nominated for five Oscars, including Best Picture."
