The Kid From Brooklyn Reviews

    Nonstop laughs featuring the ever-wonderful Danny Kaye, a young Vera Ellen, and the classically sarcastic Eve Arden. Excellent old, family comedy.

    This remake of Harold Lloyd's The Milky Way is not one of Kaye's best vehicles; an uneven, overlong comedy with intrusive (and unnecessary) production numbers by Vera-Ellen and Virginia Mayo.

    Cute, silly very lightweight comic musical with Kaye antic as ever and an amazing array of wonderful supporting actesses. Eve Arden is acerbic and terrifically droll, Vera-Ellen youthful, fresh and she dances like a dream, Fay Bainter all fractured dignity and Virginia Mayo, at the height of her beauty, sweet and charming.

    I remeber this as a kid and I loved it. Kaye was a genious and will be missed.
