Review: 
- by Debbie Dunlap
How in the world anyone spotted talent in the gawky young man presented in this little short is way beyond me.  But my-oh-my am I glad I wasn't the one judging his abilities then.  I'm ever so thankful Cary's abilities were perceived and encouraged.  You really must have this short!  It definitely shows how far Cary grew in his craft.

I like Cary's less than perfect performances; the veneer of stardom is missing.  In his earlier films we are able to see Archie Leach: motherless boy, knock-about, insecure, vulnerable.  As he matured, his performances were practically flawless.  Also as he matured, he'd perfected pretending to be Cary Grant, until he was Cary Grant.  Archie's attributes/drawbacks Cary was able to mask or overcome when he was older.  Though I thoroughly enjoy the improved performances of the 50's and 60's, the vulnerability and the imperfections is what draws me to him personally in his early films.
