“Mr. Morse is also charming–in an alarming sort of way–when he isn’t so sure of himself. his sudden look of deep seal-like shame when he realizes a girl has hooked him for lunch; his habit of using his hands as though he’d skip rope if he only had rope; his practice of seeming to try to shake water out of his ear when a damsel has an undue effect on him–all of these are graphic studies int he nature of man, pre coordinated man. Whether he is darting around high on a windy penthouse or taking off from the horizon as in a very spiritual movie, he is a magnificent (if cunning) shambles. Of course, Mr. Morse is a spastic. but they’ll probably never be able to cure it, and he’ll go right on being as funny as he is t the 46th street.” — Walter Kerr, in his first-night rave for the New York Herald Tribune.
