Fortunately, Natalie Wood actually makes something stalwart and inspiring of the limpid little thing who has played a decided second fiddle to her mother’s favorite in the early scenes. And, except towards the end, when she affects a bit of a Gallic air, Miss Wood puts solidity and sparkle into the ratty goings on.” New York Times.
