Actresses of the 50s and 60s

Millie Perkins

In 1938, American on August 2, 2017 at 12:56 pm

“Thus it is deeply unfortunate that Millie Perkins, a new and untried girl, does not rise to his level of spiritual splendor in the role of Anne. She is pretty, charming and wistful in a thin young-girlish way and she is able to make some of the prankish nature of the “baby” of the group come alive. But there does not surge out of her frail person a sense of indestructible life, of innocence and trust that show no shadows, of a spirit that will not die. She does not rise in the drama as a pillar of perceptible faith in man. She is reedy. And thus the final arch of human spirit with the father is never formed.” Bosley Crowther, The New York Times.
