KIRKUS REVIEW

This is light, very trite -- a poor relation of The Royal Family, lacking the zest and humor and emotional quality of that popular drama. This is also a story of a family in theatre, with a girl of the third generation of actors as the central character. She has made her debut on the stage at sixteen, and then imperils her career by falling in love with a young actor, with whom she elopes and keeps their marriage a secret. Both go on to success -- then Hollywood reaches out for the young husband, he accepts, and the marriage goes on the rocks, but the show goes on. Mary Kennedy knows her theatre which is all one can say.
