News & Interviews for Topper
Critic Reviews for Topper
Cary Grant and Constance Bennett, as the reincarnated Kerbys, do their assignments with great skill.
Too gentle and leisurely to survive as a solid classic, though there's pleasure to be found in the cast's graceful way with comedy and their smooth ensemble playing.
Cary Grant and Constance Bennett are Thorne Smith's continental ghosts, haranguing tired businessman Roland Young in arch screwball style.
Boasting strong performances from Cary Grant and Constance Bennett, this sophisticated screwball comedy was so popular that it led to two sequels (without Grant).
Audience Reviews for Topper
Topper, a serious minded, by-the-book sort of fellow, is in danger of being trapped in the monotony of complacency when two freewheeling buds decide to loosen him up just a little. Nothing too serious, mind you, except for ... oh, but they're dead. They're ghosts. By modern standards its hard to tell the difference much between the monotony of complacency and freewheeling depicted here, but still a grand time is had by all in this, the film that solidified Cary Grant as major star material. But this is a team effort, everyone onscreen contributing to the smiles that follow.
I liked this movie, not just because I love Grant, but it's a very funny movie. It has a great story, uses old special effects, and has great actors. What more could you want?
What a hilarious movie. Bennett and Grant have great chemistry. Young is hysterical. A wonderfully charming film.
