Critics reviews

Each of the episodes contained in her monologue has something of interest, and the film manages to keep a fairly brisk level, yet when it’s all over something seems to be missing. The problem is not really potential but performance; J. Lee Thompson’s direction manages to deliver the script, but the function is performed as if he were handling a lifeless product.
