Movie Info

In this adaptation of John Van Druten's Broadway hit, Ronald Reagan stars as a returning GI who falls in love with Eleanor Parker, an ingenuous young actress. Circumstances require the two to share an apartment, though the implications don't get much farther than the wisecracks of supporting player Eve Arden.

Critic Reviews for The Voice of the Turtle

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

Since these characters have been deprived of their chief motives, their honesty, and their essential innocence, they are also deprived of most of their reality and all their charm.

The less than talented thespian Ronald Reagan gives one of his more pleasing performances.

Even with Reagan's questionable talents this is a cute little comedy helped vastly as always by Eve Arden.
