"...turns in one of the most intelligent performances of his nineteen-year Hollywood career."
|With Walter Slezak.|
People Will Talk - Review is taken from 'The Films of Cary Grant' by Donald Deschner (1973):
"And once again, Hollywood's ranking "genius" - the only man to win four Academy Awards in two years - has something to say and says it frankly and funnily.
The film, which has a three-way plot, concentrates on one of the strangest and most adult love affairs ever to emerge from Hollywood. The wedding between Dr. Praetorius and Deborah Higgins takes place when the doctor knows she is more than a month pregnant, although he is not responsible - a situation handled in perfect taste, and resulting in an exceptionally happy union.
These heterogeneous plot strands are welded together by Grant, who turns in one of the most intelligent performances of his nineteen-year Hollywood career. And Miss Crain proves, as she did in Pinky, that she is ready to graduate from her usual pigtail roles. Much of the credit for an impressive film goes to the very adult and literate writing of Mankiewicz."
