  • he sharpness and contemporary significance of Mr. Morley's commentary are missing. His Kitty was of real flesh and blood; this one is persuasive but fictitious.

    January 31, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Sam Wood, the El Supremo of Hollywood hackdom, squired this one to glory.

    January 31, 2012 | Full Review…
  • Despite its episodic, and at times, vaguely-defined motivation, picture on whole is a poignant and dramatic portraiture of a typical Cinderella girl's love story.

  • The story is magnificent. And the performance of Ginger Rogers is incomparable. [Full review in Spanish]

    September 17, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Rogers delivers an excellent performance -- sexy, sassy and smart -- but the film's pre-feminism aspirations date badly.

    June 25, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Working woman comes into conflict with the upper class. More relevant than ever in the age of income inequality and the 1%.

    GInger Rogers is okay here on her own and away from Fred Astaire. I can't say it is particularly memorable however. Call it an early version of the chick flick.

    This movie is interesting for a romantic drama, but it's not great.

    In my favorite narrative style, the story is told in a series of flashback as Ginger engages in some dialog with her alter ego in a mirror. Kitty is confronted by her two suitors, both of whom propose to her at the same time. Wynn, is a Philadephia millionaire whilst Mark is a doctor. This scenario in her life begins a contemplating what she should do, thus, the mirror debate with herself proved to be very effective. The onscreen chemistry between Ginger Rogers and Dennis Morgan is unique and very much evident. Im not going to pretend that i know who the director, Sam Wood was, but he made this film work for me. Brilliant. <i>Wyn Strafford: Until you can get another job... Kitty Foyle: What do you mean? Wyn Strafford: Why don't I just keep you on the payroll? It's no more than fair - Kitty Foyle: Just a minute, Wyn. You needn't worry about me. I'm free, white and 21... almost. And I'll go on loving you from here on out... or until I stop loving you. But nobody owes a thing to Kitty Foyle, except Kitty Foyle. </i>

    Not only could Ginger sing and dance, but she could act too!
