“PURE JOY! STANWYCK IS ALL SNAP, CRACKLE AND POP!”
– Time Out (London)
“Stanwyck is saucy, naughty, and as quick as a shortstop!”
– David Thomson
“THE WRITING IS A MARVEL! Garbagemen and waiters, pool hall bums and showgirls, newsboys and college boys — they’re all virtuosos singing the wisecracking arias Billy Wilder and Charles Brackett have given them.”
– Charles Taylor, Village Voice
