      • Jack Gould, TV critic of the New York Times, was quite impressed with Gertrude Lawrence's work calling it "one of her typically vivacious and captivating performances. As the artist whose reknown was not so much due to her portraits as her potentialities, Miss Lawrence made herself thoroughly at home in the part. Even among television's cumbersome gear she never sat still for a moment but always knew where she was. To watch her shift from superficiality to subletly and finally to sincerity was to see an actress in the true sense of the word. It's a heady wine on TV. " He found the program a bit old fashioned in parts but "with Miss Lawrence in front of the cameras, however, there is little reason to quibble over any minor problems."


        Kevin McCarthy was deemed "appropriately intense and idealistic in a part that cannot be too much fun for an actor." Hiram Sherman was "restrained and musing" and Lawrence Fletcher "good."


        "The production by Donald Davis was generally satisfactory, if somewhat too sparing in the use of close-ups. A considerable part of the action took place too far away to capitalize fully on the friction between the characters."

      • Adapted from the 1932 S. N. Behrman play.
