Arthur is a sparkling entertainment which attempts, with a large measure of success, to resurrect the amusingly artificial conventions of 1930s screwball romantic comedies.

So little care has gone into the characterizations, the structure, and the situations that the film merely feints at significant comedy.

Only someone with a heart of stone could fail to love a drunk like Arthur Bach.

Mr. Gordon's screenplay is full of funny things, and it's beautifully paced, but it's the performances that give the picture its true classiness.
