Robert Morse in the film adaptation of ‘How to Succeed.’

“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.
