Geoff Andrew Time Out Sirk's customary concern with hypocrisy and intolerance is, given the genre and overall tone of the piece, surprisingly to the fore in a subplot about corrupt politicians. Mar 24, 2007 Full Review Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader Like the other small musicals Douglas Sirk directed at Universal in the early 50s, this is better than it was supposed to have been at the time. Mar 24, 2007 Full Review Clyde Gilmour Maclean's Magazine Not a bad little Technicolor musical, corny of plot and sometimes sticky of sentiment but buoyed up by Dan Dailey's engaging performance as a spellbinding medicine man who adopts a runaway orphan. Dec 2, 2019 Full Review Film4 Staff Film4 Sirk averaged two films a year, in all the principle genres. Several are masterworks, while others, such as this 20th-century-set musical comedy, are charming programmers enhanced by unpretentious professionalism. Mar 24, 2007 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Gets its energy by the inspired performance from Dan Dailey. Rated: B+ Mar 22, 2007 Full Review Read all reviews
