Critic Reviews for Her Cardboard Lover

All Critics (2)

George Cukor, losing his head completely, makes the cast go slapstick whenever there is nothing else happening -- and there generally isn't.

May 26, 2021 | Full Review…

Cukor'a adaptation of the French farce is disappointing due to the miscasting of Robert Taylor, signaling the end of Norma Shearer's screen career.

Audience Reviews for Her Cardboard Lover


Norma's final film is an innocuous affair and she looks great but it's a trifle that was hopelessly out of date in '42 despite the presence of George Sanders in the cast. She refused to move with the times so it's for the best that she chose a well-heeled retirement.
