Critic Reviews for Susan Slept Here
Some 97 minutes of well-farced escapism is offered in Susan Slept Here.
On the whole, "Susan Slept Here" remains as familiar as a summer breeze, but not nearly as refreshing.
This started life as a Broadway comedy and remains very theatrical, despite Tashlin's efforts to goose it into life ...
Some of the gags about 50s Hollywood are priceless (among them a parody of Gene Kelly's dream ballets).
One scene finds Debbie Reynolds using the golden head of the trademarked Oscar statuette as a makeshift hammer to crack walnuts. In Hollywood, that may have been as shocking as the sight of the desecrated statue of the Virgin Mary in 'The Exorcist.'
Audience Reviews for Susan Slept Here
Cotton candy confection with Debbie bright and chipper. Something from a much more innocent time with for that time a slightly risque story, although the fact that Debbie was actually 22 and looks it not the 17 the script indicates removing much of the ick factor. Skillfully played by all with Glenda Farrell very amusing in support and Anne Francis a knockout in an eyepoppingly elegant wardrobe.
fun movie ! Dick Powell was funny as a man who belives he is a confirmed bachelor. Debbie Reynolds creates maham when she is brought to his appartment by two vice squad officers. the reason they dont want her to spend Christmas in juvenel detention. things spiral out of control from here
