Critic Reviews for St. Louis Blues

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (4)

  • It is really a rather silly, tedious notion of emotional conflict that Robert Smith and Ted Sherdeman have used for the core of their screenplay, and it is presented with neither style nor subtlety.

  • [St. Louis Blues' cast] brings to this story a simple, and at times a moving, sincerity.

    July 31, 2020 | Full Review…
  • What is lacking throughout St. Louis Blues is not the accurate story of W. C. Handy or the correct presentation of his music. What is really lacking is the spirit of W.C. Handy.

    July 31, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Despite some heady melodramatics which are defused by sympathetic handling and excellent performances from Nat King Cole and Juano Hernandez, this is a pleasing film with a distinct feel for jazz.

    July 31, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The screenwriters' simplistic and melodramatic take on Handy's life nonetheless gains vitality and immediacy from the frank intimacy and the hushed urgency that the actors bring to their roles.

    July 31, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Leaving the theatre, we reflected on an obviously Hollywood tampered story, crammed full of talents that overshadowed each other to climax in a hazy overcast jetted with sparks of laughter and rays of delightful --evening-saving, songs.
