Critic Reviews for Four Daughters
A typical, sentimental small-town family melodrama of the 1930s, with one exception: John Garfield in a stunning screen debut as a brooding outsider.
Exemplary Warners hokum about sisters' romances
Rains carries this Warner tugger
Superior, slickly made soaper with great stars.
A surprisingly heartwarming, funny, and sad film that tugs on the heartstrings, but in a way that isn't maudlin or annoying.

Audience Reviews for Four Daughters
Keep smiling, dad! The dean of a prestigious music organization has four beautiful daughters who are coming of age and share his affection of music; of course, their love is more for the current wave of music than the classics like their dad. All four girls support each other, but as they select boyfriends, it becomes quite apparent their lives are heading in separate directions. How will their upbringing impact their direction and can they stay a cohesive unit? "If one of my three sisters were a brother, you'd all have black eyes." Michael Curtiz, director of White Christmas, Mildred Pierce, Captain Blood, The Adventures of Robin Hood, We're No Angels, Yankee Doodle Dandee, and Kid Galahad, delivers Four Daughters. The storyline for this picture is interesting because each daughter's story and direction are fascinating. The acting is also very good and the cast includes John Garfield, Claude Rains, May Robson, and Priscilla Lane. "It's homes like this that are the backbone of the nation." Four Daughters is a movie I DVR'd off Turner Classic Movies (TCM) because it was created by the legend Michael Curtiz. I found the film fun in a Little Women kind of way and it definitely contains dynamic and interesting characters. This isn't my favorite Michael Curtiz picture, but was definitely worth my time. I strongly recommend seeing this picture. "Scratch my name off your birth certificate." Grade: B
Good for its time period, Four Daughters is entertaining despite being overly sentimental.
For the most part, this movie has a good story, but it has some predictable elements and boring scenes. Overall, an okay movie.
