Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The most painful part of this very painful picture is the contrast it insists on between Miss Temple and the rest of the cast."
‑ Robert Hatch, The New Republic
"You can literally hear this drama creaking."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"They shouldn't do such things to Shirley. It's downright un-American!"
‑ Bosley Crowther, New York Times
"This is an oddity not only for the casting of future politicos Reagan and Temple in the same film, but due to its rotten script and nearly incomprehensible resolution."
