Critic Reviews for Casanova Brown

All Critics (2)

On the whole, without managing to be a great comedy, Producer Johnson's picture will make the Cooper following happy at the chance to see the lanky one playing again what looks like the typical American small-town guy.

Cooper gives a charming performance as the timid teacher caught between two women, ex-wife and fiancee, but the fun resides in watching the macho star hold, feed, and raise a baby (long before Three Men and Cradle)
