That gorgeous example of bathing beauty art (in denim) Marilyn Monroe, is a real acting threat to the season's blondes ~New York Post
She [Marilyn] plays the secondary role of the cannery worker, Peggy, with complete assurance, and she and young Andes make thier marks on the screen against the stiff competition given them by the three principals ~New York Daily News
In a minor but lovely role, Marilyn Monroe gets tight and dances on a table to the acclaim of the guests. This is her best role since The Asphalt Jungle ~Life
