Otis Ferguson The New Republic Though its rewrite of The Torch Bearers seemed a terribly old pack of cards, there had been more aces shuffled into the comedy as a whole, in the way of people and high management, than might seem possible. May 7, 2024 Full Review Ann Ross Maclean's Magazine Amateur theatricals always make easy comedy... Still it doesn't detract from the value of Doubting Thomas that the laughs are mostly of the more dependable kind. Aug 7, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member another funny vehicle 4 Rogers Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Delightful spoof - one of Rogers' best films. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member 68/100. Amusing Will Rogers movie, his humor is so unique and he is a joy to watch. Good cast, Billie Burke is a delight as always and Alison Skipworth excels, she is well cast. Sterling Holloway is memorable too. Great writing. Not a major film in it's day, but it's quite entertaining. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
