Critics reviews

The knowledge that it actually happened can only ennoble Goodrich and Hackett’s turgid sense of drama (they were comic writers at heart) so much. But I was unprepared for the sheer awfulness of Millie Perkins, who captures none of Anne’s restless intelligence and is distractingly “adorable” (especially when whining about how homely she supposedly is—they might as well have gone whole hog and cast Audrey Hepburn in the role).
