Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A treat to re-watch, almost 50 years from its original production date."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"The music is glorious, but as a movie, this is a photographed play, a nostalgic evocation of small-town American that was congruent with Kennedy's New Frontier; within a year, though, Kennedy would be assassinated and the optimistic mood would vanish"
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Too stagey and too gooey, but it preserves Preston's classic performance"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Glorious production, with gorgeous music, dancing."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"One of the most obnoxious musicals ever to be staged for movie cameras."
‑ Michael W. Phillips, Jr., Goatdog's Movies
"Robert Preston shines in one of the sunniest ol' musical classics under the sun."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"...a quintessential slice of Americana, featuring wonderful music, engaging characters, and an uplifting story."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Robert Preston is note-perfect in a bright musical even non-fans of the genre will enjoy."
‑ Nick Davis, Nick's Flick Picks
"reminds of that good old down-home attitude of the Midwest"
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
