John Cassavetes takes a shot at straight commercial filmmaking (1963), and the results are a little wide of the mark.

The film ran into trouble with Cassavetes's attempt to bring his unconventional improvisational style to the shoot.

John Cassavetes's attempt at commercial cinema is uncharacteristically conventional and sentimental melodrama, but it contains some emotional sequences between Judy Garland and the mentally challenged children.

Taken away from Cassavetes by not very nice producer Kramer for some Hollywood-style re-editing, this is nevertheless clearly the work of one of cinema's greatest talents.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

This film draws from the social stance of a Stanley Kramer and the institutional approach of a Frederick Wiseman and rises above their judgmental attitudes to produce a wonderfully provocative and sympathetic film.
