      Clyde Gilmour Maclean's Magazine Much of the film's "humor" is a tasteless lampoon of mental-hospital patients. Dec 16, 2019 Full Review Dwight MacDonald Esquire Magazine Its producer and director, one Mario Zampi, should at once be investigated by that Committee on Unartistic Activities which President Kennedy will doubtless soon force Congress to set up. Jul 23, 2019 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews The wooden acting and lame comedy never registers. Rated: C+ Jun 8, 2011 Full Review Read all reviews

      Tom M Kovacs is always funny and Charisse is so lovely she rarely needs to speak (she has few lines here). Very predictable story with a weak finish. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 09/03/21 Full Review Audience Member I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. Fun and even touching at times. Sure it's offbeat, probably why Kovacs chose it. I thought the acting was very good; Cyd Charisse is a little cold, but Kovacs is warm and even touching in a little boy kind of way, expressive and relaxed. George Sanders plays George Sanders (love him), and Kay Hammond is delightful as one of the widows. In all, an enjoyable romp for Kovacs.
