KIRKUS REVIEW

Four Manhattan career girls, in their mid-twenties, passively accept their roles as young old-maids, gathering each Saturday night to discuss things cultural. Each has her own problem and does nothing about it. The group meets a village idiot who paints their portraits in an attempt to capture the ""inner beauty"" of the girls, but once the painting is unsheathed, the girls run off in a huff and get lost in a blinding snowstorm. Snowed in an isolated cabin, each of the girls sheds her problem and emerges to the cheers of the rescuing party. Suitable for young girls, this is nevertheless non-perceptive comedy without enough glamour or romance to captivate the mass audience.
