Notes

"She is elegant, cool and slightly haughty, high-cheeked and auburn-haired . . . not yet much of an actress (let's say she doesn't have a lot to act with here), but she does lends an air to this picture."--From Bosley Crowther's review of "Kiss Them For Me", THE NEW YORK TIMES, November 9, 1957.
