Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: he sharpness and contemporary significance of Mr. Morley's commentary are missing. His Kitty was of real flesh and blood; this one is persuasive but fictitious.
Fresh: Despite its episodic, and at times, vaguely-defined motivation, picture on whole is a poignant and dramatic portraiture of a typical Cinderella girl's love story.
Fresh: Although the movie is unashamedly a soppy chick flick, it's impossible not to be swept along by her romantic dilemmas.
Ginger's Academy Award Winner
Ginger Rogers was exquisitely beautiful. Perhaps that's why her performances are so underrated. Unfortunately iTunes doesn't carry her other movies, e.g., "The Major and the Minor," "Bachelor Mother," etc.
This is a real tearjerker. I love every blurry scene.
Ginger Rogers Superb
I love this movie and Ginger Rogers. This is one of my favorite movies and I'm only thirteen. My mom and I watched this movie on an eight hour plane trip to Alaska. WE were completely absorbed for the whole length of the movie. Ginger Rogers by far deserved the Oscar for, Kitty Foyle (The Natural History of a Woman).
This is a wonderful movie and Ginger Rogers is fantastic in it. Buy it or rent it. You won't be sorry.
