"Variety" Critical Review:
"Aside from some expert mugging by Elsa Lanchester, there was little to laugh at or commend.
Jack Benny was stolid and uninspired as a bluenose college dean, Peggy Lee was miscast as his wife,
Fredric March showed some spirit as a ham,
Miss Lanchester played the housemaid and Sharon Bell essayed her young
daughter... Miss Lee came off okay warbling 'Riding High' and 'Mr. Wonderful,' and the foursome,
Benny, March, Lee and Lanchester, romped through 'Heart' from the
legituner Damn Yankees." - ["Variety", 3/28/56][RF]
