KIRKUS REVIEW

A light, sometimes bright take-off on the housing shortage as veteran Johnny Singleton and his wife mily endeavor to exchange their one-room apartment for a two-room. In the manoeuvers that follow Johnny gets involved with a brassiere designer, a mortician, a woman who lives alone in a large apartment full of Welsbach mantles, a ""madam"" preparing to expand her establishment, and works his way up toward a thirteen-way switch. On the great moving day Johnny schedules simultaneous moves in trucks provided by the Seven Saturnalia Brothers and hearses provided by the mortician, but the transportation is bogged down as the wife of the driver has a baby in a hearse and the Singletons settle for the boy scouts and pushcarts.... A sore subject, recognizable to almost everybody, in heavy comedy treatment. The humor here is not for all Public Libraries.
